NGS Developing GIS Tools and Datasets for Display and Analysis of Survey Data
NOAA's National Geodetic Survey (NGS) is in the process of developing new Geographic Information System (GIS) software tools for display and analysis of NGS survey data.
The tools convert the output from NGS GPS processing, survey control network adjustment, and geodetic leveling adjustment software into an attribute-rich standard GIS data format.
The intent is to make these tools part of the popular Web-based NGS Geodetic Toolkit. In addition, NGS is beginning to provide some of its products in standard widely-used GIS data formats.
