Impactful Coordinate Changes across SmartNet North America - 9.2016

SmartNet North America launched our adjustment & integrity monitoring program in late 2012 to assure a high quality, standard set of coordinates were available to our customers.  As part of this program we established tolerance thresholds that would initiate investigation into a station coordinates should we see coordinate shift greater than 20 mm during our semi-annual adjustment schedule.

We take adjusting the product (broadcast) coordinates very seriously, as this is immediately reflected to our customers.  However, to assure integrity of the network overall we sometimes reach a threshold that requires us to update the product coordinates.  In our most recent adjustment, we have discovered the following stations fall outside of the 20 mm tolerance and require us to update the product coordinates.  The update to the coordinates these sites could material impact measurements in the field.

Please refer to the "Site Information Search" tool to determine the amount of the shift (or click on the site code below), you can view the current and superseded coordinates, we encourage you to watch this short video to learn more about the tool - LINK.
