Notice Requesting Nominations for the Advisory Committee on Commercial Remote Sensing (ACCRES), 55565 [2019-22660]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 201 / Thursday, October 17, 2019 / Notices index.shtml. In 2022, NGS will replace the North American Datum of 1983 (NAD 83) and the North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (NAVD 88) with new geometric reference frames and a geopotential datum. The new reference frames and datum will rely primarily on Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), such as the Global Positioning System (GPS), as well as on a gravimetric geoid model resulting from the NGS Gravity for the Redefinition of the American Vertical Datum (GRAV–D) Project. These new reference frames and datum will be easier to access and maintain than NAD 83 and NAVD 88, which rely on physical survey marks that deteriorate over time. On April 18, 2018, NGS issued a draft Federal Register notice (83 FR 17149) for public comment on draft policy and procedures for the State Plane Coordinate System of 2022 (SPCS2022), which will be referenced to the 2022 reference frames. In those draft documents, it was specified that SPCS2022 parameters will be exclusively defined using metric (SI) values. However, in addition to metric values, the documents stated that output coordinates could also optionally be provided in either ‘‘international’’ or ‘‘U.S. survey feet,’’ and that by default the type of foot would be the same as currently used for SPCS 83. The official version of SPCS2022 Policy, effective April 23, 2019 (https:// geodesy.noaa.gov/INFO/Policy/files/ SPCS2022_Policy_NGS_2019-121401.pdf), states that NGS has not yet determined whether or what type of foot will be supported for output coordinates (Section II.E.1). The policy will be updated after NIST and NOAA co-issue a Federal Register notice by June 30, 2020, announcing adoption of the ‘‘foot’’ equal to 0.304 8 meter (exactly) as the official definition for all applications in the U.S. after December 31, 2022.
