GIS Fundamentals – Height and Vertical Datum
June 4, 2021 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Understanding how heights are measured and recorded in GIS systems are essential for many applied tasks such as modeling flood risk due to sea level rise. In this workshop we will understand vertical datums, the concept of height, and what do terms like orthometric height and ellipsoid height mean. This will be a lecture-style workshop with a focus on conceptual details.
Participants should know basic GIS and should be familiar with horizontal datums.
