We've just added a link in our Information Exchange to the Kansas Regional Coordinate System (KRCS) documentation on the DASC website. For those who are unfamiliar with this, the KRCS is a low distortion coordinate system that was created at KDOT's request to eliminate the need for scale factors when converting from State Plane to ground coordinates. We are hopeful that KDOT will be able to present on this topic at KAM 2019, so stay tuned for details!
If you have resources that could be beneficial to our members, please feel free to submit them for consideration in the Information Exchange.
