NOAA's National Geodetic Survey (NGS) will host their second Geospatial Summit on Improvements to the National Spatial Reference System at the Survey Summit and Esri User Conference in San Diego in July 2012.

Attendees will find out more about the planned retirement of the North American Datum of 1983 (NAD 83) and the North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (NAVD 88), how this will impact mapping work and what tools are planned to ease the transition to new, more accurate datums.

Attendance is free, but people interested in attending need to indicate that they plan to attend to allow NGS to best accommodate all interested participants. To share this information with NGS, indicate the Geospatial Summit event(s) if or when registering for the Survey Summit or Esri User Conference.

The events include:

SUNDAY, July 22, 2012

Time: 9 AM - 5 PM
Location: Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel, San Diego
This full day event will feature presentations from NGS, demonstrations of GIS tools and an expert panel discussion.

TUESDAY, July 24, 2012

Time: 12 PM - 2 PM
Location: San Diego Convention Center, San Diego 
This two-hour event is a Special Interest Group meeting, part of the Esri User Conference. NGS is seeking input specifically from the GIS community and some information from Sunday will be repeated.
