It's already time for the Closing Session & Keynote Address.

We are pleased to bring you Denis Riordan, PSM of NOAA, National Geodetic Survey as the 'cherry on top', bringing an exciting and valuable week to a close. He will discuss ....Are You Prepared For The New Datums?
Building upon the latest technology, the National Geodetic Survey will improve the National Spatial Reference System by replacing the North American Datum of 1983 and the North American Vertical Datum of 1988 with a new geometric frame and geopotential datum in 2022. Are you prepared for this change? Have you decided how you will be making this transformation? Dr. Denis Riordan will explain how this change could impact your data and what you should be doing now to prepare.

Then, we'll wrap up GIS-Pro 2019 with a little look-back at the preceding days and look ahead to GIS-Pro 2020 in Baltimore!
