Developed in partnership with COMET Program/MetEd, "Precision and Accuracy in Geodetic Surveying" is aimed at surveying professionals, planners, policy-makers and others who use mapping products. The video emphasizes that survey measurements need to be precise as well as verified as accurate by relating measurements to a known reference system such as the National Spatial Reference System in the United States.

Ocean Today is an interactive exhibit that plays short videos on ocean related themes. Visitors can select from 150+ videos on topics ranging from deep-‐sea exploration, marine species, and restoration projects to hurricanes, oceans and human health, and climate science and research. These videos are a free resource and are available on our website at oceantoday.noaa.gov.
The Ocean Today kiosk was originally developed for the Sant Ocean Hall -- a permanent exhibit at the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of Natural History. Ocean Today kiosks are now located at 37 aquaria, science centers, museums, and visitor centers in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and the U.K. To learn more about the program or to get a kiosk at your facility, visit our website.
