State Plane Coordinate
System of 2022
By: Brian Fisher, RLS
State Geodetic Coordinator, AZ

An update of the State Plane Coordinate System (SPCS) is part of the transition from the North American Datum of 1983 (NAD 83) to the 2022 Terrestrial Reference Frames. To this end, the National Geodetic Survey (NGS) will establish the State Plane Coordinate System of 2022 (SPCS2022), which will replace SPCS 83, the version referenced to NAD 83.
SPCS is a system of large-scale conformal map projections originally created in the 1930s to support surveying, engineering, and mapping activities throughout the U.S. and its territories. As a reminder, a map projection is a systematic transformation of the latitudes and longitudes of locations on the surface of a sphere or ellipsoid representing the Earth to grid coordinates (x, y or easting, northing values) on a plane. This is where the curvilinear or round system of measurements meets the ‘flat earth’ of plane geometry. Think of the 2D space you work in for CAD, BIM and GIS mapping
