  • New ASPRS Positional Accuracy Standards for Digital Geospatial Data Released
    the accuracy required vs how much time and expense are justified in achieving it and then to describe the accuracy of the result in a uniform way that is reliable defensible and repeatable The new ASPRS standards address recent innovations in digital imaging and non imaging sensors airborne GPS inertial measurement units IMU and aerial triangulation AT technologies Unlike prior standards the new standards are independent of scale and contour interval they address higher levels of accuracies achievable by the latest technologies e g unmanned aerial systems and lidar mobile mapping systems and they provide enough flexibility to be applicable to future technologies as they are developed Finally the new standards provide cross references to older standards as well as detailed guidance for a wide range of potential applications No prior U S accuracy standard comprehensively addresses the current state of mapping technology which is why the new ASPRS standards were developed The National Map Accuracy Standards NMAS developed in 1947 are still used because they are simple but there is no scientific correlation between those standards and current mapping methodologies The ASPRS 1990 Standards were an improvement over NMAS however they did not do well in representing the capabilities of Lidar orthoimagery digital mapping cameras or other current technologies in wide spread use today The National Standard for Spatial Data Accuracy NSSDA is a reporting standard that references the old ASPRS 1990 standards and is cross referenced in the new ASPRS standards NSSDA provides no accuracy thresholds and does not by itself provide any new or updated guidance on how to select or specify an appropriate accuracy for intended applications The new ASPRS standards were developed by the ASPRS Map Accuracy Standards Working Group a joint committee under the Photogrammetric Applications Division Primary Data Acquisition Division and Lidar Division
