Re: Charts II: NGA - 2700 Charts

Ah, I see. It appears that most of the south coast is conspicuous by its absence. Looks like the east coast, down around the south to Melbourne, north coast and west coast are covered and so is Tassie. If you are going from the west coast to the east coast south of the continent, you are SOL.

Darn things must exist somewhere. Time to do some digging I guess.

Thanks...

Re: Charts II: NGA - 2700 Charts

I've looked at the following charts:

24123 - misprinted corner coordinate
23023 - error in corner coordinate entry
23145 - error in corner coordinate entry
71402 - error in corner coordinate entry
71400 - looks okay
71350 - looks okay
71330 - looks okay
71455 - minor adjustment to REF points
22531 - looks okay, no corner coordinates
22533 - looks okay
24121 - looks okay
24215 - looks okay
29325 - looks okay
63361 - looks okay

Re: Charts II: NGA - 2700 Charts

..By the way,I noticed that Ze'ev and I are both doing the same thing with the charts that have bits sticking out beyond the borders....we are calibrating them completely so they can be downloaded as kaps but we are calling them "un-doable because Special Plys needed".
I think now this is the correct approach (because they can be easier "re-plyed" when the insets are?)but what does everyone else think?

PS:I wasn't doing this until halfway down in the 6000's so maybe I better go back...?oh looks like somebody did em-thanks!weren't many.

That's what I've been doing. I figure if you open the chart you may as well put in everything you can. And since the KAP can usually generated, you can check what you put in. I usually comment where the extra PLY's are required, by edge and corner.

I did the same in the serie 2, but i qoted them as rectangular doable to be able to use them. should i change the header ? I did not know that the kap could be generated when they were quoted as undoable ...

I corrected the west american charts that I did that way when I figured out the KAP's were generated in spite of being "Undoable". We eventually will need to know which charts need extra attention to be finished.

I just went through the comments to the region 2 charts and fixed 2 that were commented as needing PLY's but identified as "rectangular doable". They were 21121 (one of mine), and 28162.

Siff,don't run back and hunt em down yet
they are hard to spot from the thumbnails so it takes too long and there won't be many.They'll pop up later anyways,if it really matters.And I don't know that it does
...I discovered it by accident.
That said,The ones with "thumbs" are as possible as the "doable with insets".It's really the same as a chart with insets except the insets are outside the chart.I'm betting both these will rely on the first calibration to finish,so,the only thing I'd change is undoable to doable.They still need some way to note them and return easily,when the tool exists to fix em.

Question Re: Charts II: NGA - 2700 Charts

72050 has a strange combination of two notes:
Datum Note:
Adjustments for plotting positions obtained from satellite navigation systems based on the World Geodetic System (WGS) cannot be determined for this chart

Note:
Later determinations indicate that all meridians on this chart should be shifted by approximately 18" westward; in effect decreasing coordinate values by 18" of longitude
There are several questions here:
  1. Should the second note be considered as superseding the datum note?
    I assumes we should consider it
  2. What's the datum for of the correction specified in the second note?
    I assumed WGS-84
  3. If the meridians on the map should be moved westward, what does that mean for the shift of WGS-84 coordinates?
    I assumed they should be moved 0.3' eastward, 0.0' northward
Comments?

Re: Charts II: NGA - 2700 Charts

Ze'ev,I'd use the latter and note that you did in the comments box.
and I'd do it as in
"0.3" (minutes) then "Westward" just as it says..
And then I'd download it and see if it is right with other better charts in the area for what that may be worth.(don't use cm93 charts unless they ARE KNOWN to be spot on...)

Charts II: NGA - 2700 Charts

in a previous post,Cagney (Thomas) describes what process is used to make the kaps from these.Basically it does what you would do calibrating the image yourself-reversing our input -in a way,our entry describes what you'd do to the chart- notthe positioning .

And
entering as it says is way easier on us.

Re: Charts II: NGA - 2700 Charts

18" is a big correction!wow.That one could be checked with googlemaps,I bet.
here's Thomas's explain

Re: Charts II: NGA - 2700 Charts

What is the address for the finish product (.kap) file format? Or do we have to do it ourself for each one?
Regards

I think you've got it the wrong way round, i.e. I suspect that the "note" preceded the "datum note".

It's not that someone decided it couldn't be made WGS compatible and then realised it could, by adjusting the meridians.

Rather, it was realised at some time between 1907 and probably 1959 that the 18" correction was necessary to correct the chart to the originally intended datum (which could have been more or less anything).

The datum note would then have been added later, as on many other charts, to warn that you can't use this chart with a GPS.

So your assumption about WGS84 is unjustified, in my view. I've changed it to "unknown", which is what that option exists for. So, it's an unknown datum, corrected to an unknown datum, which is all that you can deduce from the chart.

Charts II: NGA - 2700 Charts
The "usual" datum note text, as given in Tomas's explanation, refers to the translation of WGS-84 coordinates to map coordinates.

The text of the note in this example, refers to the correction in the map coordinates ("all meridians on this chart") to some unknown datum. That's why I think it needs to make a reverse correction from WGS-84 to the map.

An any case, I'll take your advice and see if the correction is worthy.

I agree with your deductions. The 18" note is typical for corrections on pre WGS charts. No note today, would be made without reference to WGS (hopefully!).

My interpretation of NGA:s WGS datum note, is that it has been found impossible to bring this chart to agree with WGS84, with a single correction.
With reference to WGS 84 the chart is warped in some way.

Thomas

PS. To see some very old, similar notes, check 83225.
