The Blue Marble Team
Projections are inseparable from Cartography and GIS. With that in mind, it's sometimes easy to let the fundamentals slip and when that happens, mistakes in measurements and analysis can lead to bad decisions. Following on from our last geodesy session on Datums, in this session with special guest David Doyle, the former Chief Geodetic Surveyor at the National Geodetic Survey, we will take a deep dive into the world of projections. Sam Knight, Director of Product Management at Blue Marble will begin the session with a refresher on the basics of map projection and modern development of "low distortion projections" that are increasing in use around the world. Then David Doyle currently with Base9 Geodesy will take us through some discussion of the background of the state plane systems and a discussion of how the new datums coming in 2022 in the US will affect our work with projections, particularly the US State Plane coordinate systems in the coming years. We will be taking questions throughout and also have a dedicated question and answer period to wrap up. Join Blue Marble and Base9 Geodesy for what is sure to be a great geodetics session on working with projections.
