Coordinate Referencing
With recent advances in technology; the new Nova Scotia High Percision Network (NSHPN) provides a greater degree of accuracy from 150 high percision stations positioned by GPS.

The Nova Scotia Coordinate Referencing System (NSCRS) database is the primary source for all land-related measurements and the location of geographic information in the province, providing the framework for all provincial topographic, property, and thematic mapping programs in Nova Scotia.

The Province of Nova Scotia continues to improve the NSCRS, both in the development of the Nova Scotia High Precision Network (NSHPN) as well as in the maintenance of the existing Nova Scotia Coordinate Control System (NSCCS).  The NSHPN provides a degree of accurancy that is compatible with similar standards being adopted elsewhere across the continent.
