Canadian Geodetic Survey – Supporting Accurate Geospatial Positioning in Canada
The Canadian Geodetic Survey (CGS) of Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) is responsible for defining, maintaining, and providing access to the Canadian Spatial Reference System (CSRS). The CSRS provides a consistent reference for surveying, mapping, and other applications which require accurate positioning. This presentation will describe the CGS products, tools and services which are currently available and provide access to the Canadian Spatial Reference System (CSRS). It will also take a look at some future updates, including the planned reference system modernization in the United States, and how this may impact the Canadian geospatial community.
