The seminar will consider sharing survey grade GPS geographic information with the public. Steve Cobb will present a brief review of datums, map projections and the Nebraska State Plane Coordinate system. Field techniques employed by local firms for GPS surveying will be presented along with demonstrations of selected programs and apps for phones and handheld devices.  Currently the Nebraska GIS Council has contacted the State Surveyor's Office and PSAN to discuss the possibilities of including survey information in GIS projects. An open discussion with the surveying community is necessary prior to any response. This seminar will provide such an opportunity for the SENLSA membership. Your participation is encouraged.
