BETHESDA, Md., March 2, 2015 – The American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) is pleased to announce the release of the new Positional Accuracy Standards for Digital Geospatial Data. The new standards are available at: http://www.asprs.org/Standards-Activities.html.
The new ASPRS accuracy standards fill a critical need for map users and map makers alike. For centuries, map scale and contour interval have been used as an indication of map accuracy. Users want to know how accurately they can measure different things on a map, and map makers want to know how accurate maps need to be in order to satisfy user requirements. Those contracting for new maps depend on some form of map accuracy standard to evaluate the tradeoff between the accuracy required vs. how much time and expense are justified in achieving it, and then to describe the accuracy of the result in a uniform way that is reliable, defensible, and repeatable.
The ASPRS Annual Conferences have been RE-designed, RE-imagined and RE-thought with YOU in mind! Introducing....
