NGS Video Training Opportunities

Posted 14 May 2015

NGS, in partnership with The COMET Program, has released an online learning module titled Understanding Heights and Vertical Datums. It is a self-paced module with some narrated features, and generally takes between 45 minutes and 1 hour to complete. It provides a basic understanding of vertical datums and how to choose the appropriate datum for a given application, with a conceptual introduction to ellipsoidal, geopotential, and tidal datums.

Click here to access the module. You will first have to create a user account, but it is free and quick, and will give you access to this course and many others that may be of interest. You will have the option of printing out a certificate upon successful completion of the quiz at the end of the module.

Visit our growing Video Library and our Training Calendar for recent updates.

Thank you,
