This year’s conference included a visit to Capitol Hill, professional development, an exhibit hall, and a national student competition. The topic for the 2017 student competition was to conduct a survey that focused on the collection and analysis of high precision vertical data.
Topics included using GPS for geoid model improvement and verification, precise leveling for seismic or subsidence monitoring, deformation monitoring in construction, complex point cloud models, monitoring of sea level rise, and industrial applications such as machine alignment.
