- 12:45 - "Dynamic Coordinate Reference Systems" with Craig Allinson (BP) - It may feel only like yesterday that our Data Stores and software
“standardised on the use of WGS 84 as the “hub datum” to allow for data
to be stored in a common CRS with the ability to translate between
different local CRSs, but in all this time the earth has been subject to
Plate Tectonics. Whilst our Geologists may think in terms of Paleo
motion, our data is also subject to positional change. Many countries
are considering adoption of new national Geodetic Datums to reflect this
movement (i.e. Australia GDA2020) and so both our data stores and our
software will need to be able to accommodate both the parameters and the
need to record the epoch of data collection for us to perform the
necessary coordinate change to correctly register current positions of
this valuable data. For more information regarding
Dynamic verses static CRSs and the use of ITRF (instead of simply WGS
84) I suggest this IOGP Guidance Note https://www.iogp.org/bookstore/product/geomatics-guidance-note-25-dynamic-v…
