1 WHAT YOU NEED TO USE THE STATE PLANE COORDINATE SYSTEMS N & E State Plane Coordinates for Control Points AZIMUTHS  True, Geodetic, or Grid  Conversion from Astronomic to Geodetic (LaPlace Correction)  Conversion from Geodetic to Grid (Mapping Angle) DISTANCES  Reduction from Horizontal to Ellipsoid SeaLevel Reduction Factor  Correction for Grid Scale Factor  Combined Factor
2 THREE DISTANCES: GROUND DISTANCE = NORMAL TO GRAVITY BETWEEN TWO POINTS GEODETIC DISTANCE = ALONG THE ELLIPSOID GRID DISTANCE = ALONG THE MAP PROJECTION SURFACE PROJECTED COORDINATES ARE ALWAYS DISTORTED
3 DEFINITIONS GRID SCALE Factor Multiplier to change geodetic distances based on the Earth model (ellipsoid) to the grid plane. ELEVATION Factor (a.k.a. Sea Level Reduction or Ellipsoid Reduction Factor) Multiplier to change horizontal ground distances to geodetic (ellipsoid) distances GRIDELEVATION or COMBINED Factor Gird Scale Factor times the Elevation Factor This factor changes horizontal ground distances to grid distances
4 Normal to ellipsoid

6 AZIMUTH RELATIONSHIP True Azimuth Derived from astronomic observations (e.g. Solar/Polaris) this can usually be considered the same as a geodetic azimuth. Geodetic Azimuth Derived from the inverse between two points of known latitude and longitude, or from a LaPlace corrected astronomic azimuth or a grid azimuth with the mapping angle ( ) applied Grid Azimuth Derived from the inverse between two points defined in northing & easting, or from a geodetic azimuth  the mapping angle ( ) (e.g. State Plane, UTM, local grid coordinates)

16 STATE PLANE COORDINATE COMPUTATION N 1 = N + (S g x cos g ) E 1 = E + (S g x sin g ) Where: N = Starting Northing Coordinate E = Starting Easting Coordinates S g = Grid Distance g = Grid Azimuth
17 REDUCTION TO THE ELLIPSOID D H h N S R Earth Radius 6,372,200 m 20,906,000 ft. S = D * R R + h Where: h = H + [N] S = D * R R + H + (N)

19 REDUCTION TO ELLIPSOID Ellipsoid Ht /Orthometric Ht S geodetic = D x [R / (R + h)] D = 3, ft (Measured Horizontal Distance) R = 20,906,000 ft (Mean Radius of the Earth) h = H + N (H = 642 ft, N = ft) = 529 ft (Ellipsoid Height) S = 3, [20,906,000 / 20,906, ] S = 3, x S = 3, ft S geodetic = 3, [20,906,000 / 20,906, ] S geodetic = 3, x S geodetic = 3, ft Diff = 0.02 ft or ~ 1:166,000
20 REDUCTION TO ELLIPSOID Mean Radius vs. Computed Earth Radius S geodetic = D x [R / (R + h)] D = 3, ft (Measured Horizontal Distance) R = 20,906,000 ft (Mean Radius of the Earth) R = 20,936,382 ft (Computed Radius of the Earth) h = 529 S geodetic = 3, [20,906,000 / 20,906, ] S geodetic = 3, x S geodetic = 3, ft S geodetic = 3, [20,936,382 / 20,936, ] S geodetic = 3, x S geodetic = 3, ft Diff = 0.00 ft
21 GRID SCALE FACTOR (k) OF A POINT GRID CONVERGENCE ANGLE ( ) OF A POINT Easiest to obtain by using NGS SPCs tool kit utility or CORPSCON
22 GRID SCALE FACTOR (k) OF A LINE k 12 = (k 1 + 4k m + k 2 ) / 6 (m = mean of k 1 & k 2 ) Typically the Average Value Works Fine k 12 = (k 1 + k 2 ) / 2
23 REDUCTION TO GRID S grid = S geodetic * k (Grid Scale Factor) S grid = 3, x S grid = 3, meters
24 COMBINED FACTOR (CF) CF = Ellipsoidal Reduction x Grid Scale Factor (k) = x = CF x D = S grid x 3, = 3, ft
25 GRID AZIMUTH COMPUTATION grid = Astro + Laplace Correction Convergence Angle ( ) = 253 o (Observed Astro Azimuth) (Laplace Correction) = 253 o (Geodetic Azimuth) (Convergence Angle) = 252 o (Grid Azimuth) The convention of the sign of the convergence angle is always from Grid to Geodetic
26 STATE PLANE COORDINATE COMPUTATION N 1 = N + (S grid x cos grid ) E 1 = E + (S grid x sin grid ) N 1 = 428, (3, x Cos 252 o ) = 428, (3, x ) = 428, (1,000.85) = 427, U.S. Survey Feet E 1 = 2,401, (3, x Sin 252 o ) = 2,401, (3, x ) = 2,401, (3,159.99) = 2,398, U.S. Survey Feet
27 GROUND LEVEL COORDINATES SURFACE LEVEL COORDINATES PROJECT DATUM COORDINATES LOW DISTORTION PROJECTIONS I WANT STATE PLANE COORDINATES RAISED TO GROUND LEVEL GROUND LEVEL COORDINATES ARE NOT STATE PLANE COORDINATES!!!!!
28 GROUND LEVEL COORDINATES PROBLEMS RAPID DISTORTIONS* PROJECTS DIFFICULT TO TIE TOGETHER* CONFUSION OF COORDINATE SYSTEMS LACK OF DOCUMENTATION * Can be minimized with LDP
29 GROUND LEVEL COORDINATES IF YOU DO TRUNCATE COORDINATE VALUES SUCH AS: N = 404, ft becomes 4, E = 26,341, ft becomes 1, AND

31 Problems with NAD 83 and NAVD 88 NAD 83 is not as geocentric as it could be (approx 12 m). Data users don t see this Yet NAD 83 is not well defined with positional velocities. Most users still think of NAD 83 as 2dimensional (lat/long, N/E) NAVD 88 is realized by passive control (bench marks) most of which have not been releveled in 40 years. NAVD 88 does not account for local vertical velocities (subsidence and uplift) Post glacial isostatic readjustment Subsurface fluid withdrawal Sediment loading Sea level rise.
32 The National Geodetic Survey 10 year plan Mission, Vision and Strategy Official NGS policy as of Jan 9, 2008 Modernized agency Attention to accuracy Attention to timechanges Improved products and services Integration with other fed missions 2018 Targets: NAD 83 and NAVD 88 redefined Cmaccuracy access to all coordinates Customerfocused agency Global scientific leadership
