GeoCue Presents a Conversation with the National Geodetic Survey

Madison, Ala., June 4, 2014—GeoCue Group is pleased to present “A Conversation with the National Geodetic Survey.”  The National Geodetic Survey’s (NGS) mission is to “define, maintain and provide access to the National Spatial Reference System to meet our nation’s economic, social, and environmental needs.”  In simple terms, the NGS is, for the United States and its territories, ground zero for precise positioning information.  From defining the nation’s spatial reference systems to free on-line services for survey position refinement, the NGS provides research and services vital to the surveying, civil engineering and GIS interests of the USA.

This topic will be presented by Mr. Brett Howe, the Geodetic Services Division (GSD) Chief for the National Geodetic Survey of the National Ocean Service (NOS)/ National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).  Brett joined NGS in 2004, starting out as a program analyst and then as needs arose filling various other positions including acting Spatial Reference System Division Chief and most recently, in 2013, acting Deputy Director. Brett has a B.S.E. degree in electrical engineering from the U.S. Naval Academy and a Master’s in Public Policy from Georgetown University with a specialization in Public Management.
