Coordinate Systems Analysis provides the foundation data and parameters to transition NGA's products from local datums to WGS 84, and the geodetic analysis and information to DOD weapons/navigation systems in support of national security and intelligence objectives while ensuring the geodetic accuracy and scientific integrity of NGA.
NGA derives, validates, documents and databases local-to-WGS 84 transformation parameters.
NGA generates geodetic reports which include:
- Grid printouts
- Coordinate conversion notes
- Magnetic declination diagrams
- MGRS lettering and grid zone designators
NGA uses GIS and image analysis software to verify grids, projections and datum transformations. NGA also analyzes non-WGS 84 geospatial information, reports on geodetic interoperability analysis and reporting and provides geodetic training to NGA personnel and its customers.
