Slide 4

GPS Datum Tarpit What\'s the major ordeal? A football field of contrast on the off chance that you are incorrect! Consider the possibility that you\'re on the wrong side of the edge. On the other hand more terrible… the valley!! SHIFT HAPPENS!

Slide 5

Datum Shift 0.13miles Shift Happens - Florida Example

Slide 6

Shift Happens - Redmond OR 2005 Example 710 Feet

Slide 7

In the Field Comms between GPS clients Comms amongst GPS and Maps Example: dispatch in one datum, you read off in another In the GIS Projecting information on top of GIS information Example: You set DNRGarmin Projection to UTM 10 NAD83, yet your GIS is in UTM 10 NAD27 When Datums Matter

Slide 8

Written or Spoken Datum MISMATCH Them You 400 feet off Display set to NAD27 They Expect WGS84

Slide 9

Transfer to GIS Set Projection in DNR Garmin to NAD27 GIS GPS Always Stores in WGS84 Working in NAD27

Slide 10

GPS Datum Tips Summary: Check, check, check When Downloading with DNR Garmin, Always check "Set Projection" to coordinate your GIS ASK! When you hear WGS84, with your scale, it\'s the same as NAD83 Aviation GPS is dependably WGS84

Error, Accuracy, and Precision Importance Safety Make or break a GIS venture Learn approaches to keep GPS mistakes to a base Be mindful of the issues Kenneth E. Foote and Donald J. Huebner, The Geographer\'s Craft Project, Department of Geography, The University of Colorado at Boulder.

Slide 12

Basic Definitions 1.) Accuracy: how near truth or acknowledged qualities. 2) Precision: how repeatable or predictable

Slide 13

Basic Definitions Accurate + Precise = Low Error ! 3.) Error: incorporates both the imprecision of information and its mistakes

Slide 14

Map Scale Accuracy and Precision for a guide are a component of the scale at which the guide was made Applies for computerized or paper National Mapping Accuracy Standards utilized by USGS

Slide 15

Map Accuracy Standards 1:2,400 ± 6.67 feet 1:24,000 ± 40.00 feet 1:63,360 ± 105.60 feet 1:100,000 ± 166.67 feet

Slide 16

Map Scale and the Garmin Will your Garmin GPS MAP76 meet Mapping Accuracy guidelines for a 1:24,000 scale item (+/ - 40\')? What about 1:63,360 (+/ - 105\')? Recently, we addressed that inquiry?
