Course Availability

This course is only available to trainees days after purchase. It would need to be repurchased by the trainee if not completed in the allotted time period. This course is no longer available. You will need to repurchase if you wish to take the course again.

Description

This is a good introductory course for giving the background on the development and uses of the U.S. state plane coordinate system, and how projections for the cylinder and cone are developed. While it is part of a series, it can be valuable for those wishing to have some “big picture” understanding about the system without getting into details.

Objectives

Objectives
By the end of each session, participants will be able to:
1. Understand the history of the development of the U.S. SPCS
2. Understand some of the reasons for why the system was developed; some of the problems it was designed to solve are discussed
3. Understand the problems that are created when doing surveys over large extent without considering the earth’s curvature
4. Appreciate the types of projections for the chief systems used in the U.S.: Transverse Mercator and Lambert conformal, and lelarn how points from the earth are represented on the developed cylinder and cone
