Height Modernization Programs Hosts Forum
The Illinois Height Modernization Program hosted a forum on real-time networks for obtaining elevation data with global positioning systems systems. Nearly 75 people attended the forum at Northern Illinois University-Rockford in November 2009. The forum featured speakers from the National Geodetic Survey and was well received. Several positive comments were received. One attendee wrote that the workshop was the best he'd attended in ten years. The programs manager from the National Geodetic Survey wrote, "I think you did a great job with the forum. Wonderful turnout and I don't think it was all about the PDHs [professional developed hours]. People looked very interested and engaged. Keep up the great work."
