Thursday, Oct. 9 — NGS releases video explaining difference between 'precision' and 'accuracy' in geodetic surveying

from NSPS

The National Geodetic Survey (NGS) has just released a new (approximately two-minute) video focusing on the importance of both precision and accuracy in geodetic surveying and the difference between the two terms. Produced as a collaborative effort between NGS and The COMET® Program, the video is designed for surveying professionals, planners, policy-makers, and others who use mapping products.

This resource is hosted on COMET's YouTube Channel. COMET is a world-wide leader in support of education and training for the environmental sciences. The video emphasizes that the accuracy of survey measurements should always be verified by relating measurements to a known reference system, such as the National Spatial Reference System (NSRS) in the United States. NGS defines, maintains, and provides access to theNSRS, the consistent coordinate system that defines latitude, longitude, height, scale, gravity, and orientation throughout the United States and is designed to meet our nation’s economic, social, and environmental needs.

Watch the video today on YouTube.
