  • How federal and state organizations are implementing Height Modernization: this includes any projects/programs related to maintaining or improving elevation information in the state (e.g. leveling, GPS on bench marks, real time networks, lidar, and more…)


  • Height Modernization is an initiative focused on establishing accurate, reliable heights using Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) technology in conjunction with traditional leveling, gravity, and modern remote sensing information.
  • Elevation (orthometric height) information contributes to informed decision making and impacts a wide range of important activities including mapping and charting, flood risk determination, transportation infrastructure, land use and ecosystem management.
