    Thank you for posting.
    This webinar should be highly recommended. A lot of folks are not aware just how big a step Grav-D is in perfecting consistent national geoid and hybrid geoid models. The NGS has done an amazing thing with such little funding.

    I will be "attending"

    Edit: Now that I look at my calender, I see that I was actually going to listen in on a Canadian webinar at 1:30 today:

    https://www4.gotomeeting.com/register/137357479

    They are planning to release their new vertical datum in November 2013.

    NRCan will release a new vertical reference system for Canada in November 2013: the Canadian Geodetic Vertical Datum of 2013 (CGVD2013). This new datum is superseding the Canadian Geodetic Vertical datum of 1928 (CGVD28), which was adopted by an Order in Council in 1935.

    Now I have to decide which one to listen in on.

    Very well presented webinar. For those who missed it and are interested, the recorded version will be posted in the "Online Leaning Resources" section of the NGS webiste as soon as possible.

    That's a bunch of smart people right there.

    I suppose that the "Online Leaning Resources" section would focus on the deflection of the vertical.
