Geodetic Coordinate Systems

Understand the differences between coordinate systems and the variables that define them. Recognize the need to convert data from one system to another. Determine the most appropriate cartographic system for the area of interest. Upon completion of this course, the learner will be able to: distinguish between different coordinate systems, list variables necessary to define a coordinate systems, identify strengths and weakness of different coordinate systems, describe work flow to establish coordinate system of different data types, describe the Global Positioning System and how it is used in determining geodesic positions, and review and convert cartographic data and maps to the most applicable geographic system.
