For the 2018 National Surveyors Week, TSPS Chapter 12 - Coastal Bend assisted the National Spatial Reference System (NSRS) by participating in the GPS on Benchmarks (GPS on BM) campaign. Their efforts supported the following objectives:

  • Improve the next hybrid geoid model, GEOID18
  • Improve the 2022 Transformation Tool , which will enable conversions to the new vertical datum in 2022 and be integrated into the NGS Coordinate Conversion and Transformation Tool (NCAT); and
  • Help the local surveying community.

In support, the Chapter observed the NGS Monument “CALLO 2” (on Ocean Drive, East of Ward Island/TAMUCC and the Church) on Friday March 23rd from 2:30p to 4:30p. 

GISSO friends were there to join them!
