Summary
Abstract: The Province maintains the Provincial geodetic networks of control points
located throughout Nova Scotia. Each control point is a permanent, fixed point
on the ground for which the precise geographic location has been accurately
determined through conventional survey methods or Global Positioning System
(GPS) technology.

The information is recorded and stored in the Nova Scotia Coordinate Reference
System (NSCRS) database. Service Nova Scotia and Municipal Relations is
responsible for the maintenance of the database, the physical maintenance of
the current control network(s) and, for the mathematical integrity of the
network computations.

Geodetic network and control point information is available in many forms
through regional Land Information Centres (LICs) and through the Nova Scotia
Geomatics Centre, Amherst (01-902-667-7231). Whether you are interested in a
single control point or a network of control points covering a specific map
sheet, on paper or in digital form, our offices are ready to help.

Nova Scotia Coordinate Reference System (NSCRS) Database is the primary source
for information on the Province's geodetic networks and control points. The
NSCRS provides the spatial context used for all provincial topographic,
property, and thematic mapping programs.
