    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.

    Do you believe that the annual KAM conference is only a few months away? As you know, the conference is when we get to recognize those people who do amazing things in GIS and KAM on a daily basis. The conference is also when we decide who our leadership will be for the following year. We need your help to identify those people! Nominations are open for awards and also for KAM board members. Please take a minute and nominate someone – links are below. Please remember – the deadline for nominations is August 1, 2019.
