A Discovery Team meeting will be held in Madison on July 19, 2018, to define the main impact areas of the new NATRF2022 reference frame and identify the main stakeholder groups affected.
As part of the transition to the new 2022 Terrestrial Reference Frames the National Geodetic Survey will update the nation’s State Plane Coordinate System.
Okay, maybe geodesy isn’t fun for most of us. But Dave Doyle, former Chief Geodetic Surveyor with the National Geodetic Survey, has a knack for making the topic interesting and entertaining.

This handbook is a technical guide and resource for those who work with geospatial information in Wisconsin. It provides a brief overview of the history, evolution, and basics of Wisconsin’s coordinate reference systems, and compiles in one place the technical specifications for systems most commonly used in the state.
Software packages available to convert and transform coordinate reference systems.
Please note: WCCS was redesigned in 2006 and replaced by a new system called WISCRS. These parameters are provided for historical reference. For more information, see the SCO publication “Wisconsin Coordinate Reference Systems.”
Prior to the 2006 redesign of WCCS, two coordinate systems existed for Jackson County, WI. One system is part of the statewide Wisconsin County Coordinate System as documented in the 1995 Coordinate Systems Handbook published by the SCO. The other system was created by Jackson County, and is named by the county as the Jackson County Official Projection. It is important to note that these two systems have distinctly different parameters,
Coordinate systems are used to accurately identify locations on the Earth’s surface, and are one of the fundamental building blocks that make modern Geographic Information Systems possible. This pages contains more information on coordinate reference systems commonly used in Wisconsin.
We answer hundreds of technical mapping-related questions every year from both the general public and geospatial professionals. This page provides more information on some of the most common questions we receive from map and GIS users.
