Welcome to the Home of LSU C4G
LSU’s College of Engineering created the Center for GeoInformatics (C4G) to build new research and services in Geodesy and GeoInformatics.
The NGS presentation on Friday March 15, 2013, pointed out that GEOID12a produces 95% confidence at ± 4 to 8 cm in Louisiana. The NGS conclusion states that the problem is too large for NGS to handle alone and we all need to work together to get better height results. They also recommend partnering with locals to leverage existing resources and that a plan needed to be created to move forward with improving heights.
The presentation was given by NGS geodesists / scientists, Michael Dennis and Dan Roman.
Big picture ideas to consider from the presentation
Recently, NOAA’s National Geodetic Survey released updated orthometric heights for Southern Louisiana relative to the September 2010 GNSS Height Modernization project. These heights represent the most up to date heights available for the region. On March 15, 2013, NGS hosted a free, on-line webinar to present the results of this project.
