Height Modernization Program Active Network

July 26, 2017

The WisDOT Geodetic Survey Unit has developed a Wisconsin Continuously Operating Reference Stations (WISCORS) Network consisting of permanent GPS sites, which provide real-time correctors to mobile users. Mobile users properly equipped to take advantage of these correctors can survey in the field to the 2-cm accuracy level in real-time.

Height Modernization Program Passive Network

The Wisconsin Height Modernization Program (HMP) is designed to improve the density of geodetic control stations listed in the National Spatial Reference System (NSRS) with accurate orthometric heights (elevations). The Wisconsin Dept. of Transportation (WisDOT), in cooperation with the National Geodetic Survey (NGS), initiated a program in 1998 to improve the height data throughout the State.
