Meet APSG at the Expo
APSG will be hosting a booth in the Expo Hall at the 2019 Esri Petroleum GIS Conference. Visit us at Booth #423 to learn more about our organization, catch up with our committee and members, and more!
APSG Talks & Education Session
Our Education committee will be running a session during the Esri Petroleum GIS Conference to showcase industry knowledge and expertise. Find us from 3pm to 4pm on Wednesday, May 15th in Room 320 to hear the following presentations:
The New TRF2022 Datum: Are Your Ready? Conversions and Transformations That GIS Folks Need to Know About | Presented by Dan Prouty, PhD (National Geodetic Survey)
3:00PM - 3:30PM | The National Geodetic Survey will be releasing a new horizontal and vertical datum - TRF2022. We will discuss the current plan to build a new State Plane Coordinate Systems, provide conversion and transformations, and move to the new geometric Geoid. Examples of how it can be used in ArcGIS Pro will be demonstrated. Low Distortion Projections are being proposed to complement or replace existing State Plan Projections. Low Distortion Projections are linear distortions minimized at topographic surface (not at ellipsoid surface) to reduce difference between and projected "grid" and actual "ground" distances. The presentation will discuss how Geographic Information System (GIS) professionals can start to see the future Geodetic Coordinate System of TRF2022 in ArcGIS and how time dependent values can be modeled.
Parcel and LiDAR Datasets in the TNRIS DataHub and How They Can Help You | Presented by TNRIS
3:30PM - 4:00PM | The Texas Natural Resources Information System (TNRIS) is releasing a DataHub where Geographic Information System (GIS) users can get access to more State data. TNRIS acquires data through partnerships with other federal and state agencies through the StratMap Contract, which operates through the Texas Department of Information Resources (TxDIR). We will demonstrate how you can utilize the Land Parcels and LiDAR data to build 3D maps of property to precise coordinate systems. The DataHub is a new way to access TNRIS data. The DataHub replaces the Data Catalog, Data Search & Download, and Order Data sections of the site.
Note that these talks are included in the 2019 Esri Petroleum GIS Conference Agenda under the Tech Workshop - Survey category.
