9 Recommendations: Outreach – Informing the public and other political entities of the benefits MIDOT & NGS booth at Michigan State University Farm Expo in 2013 MIDOT & NGS Presentation at Michigan Professional Surveyors Conference. Partnerships - MIDOT and private sector involvement with IGLD GPS Survey Possible addition of more leveling to NOAA water levels gauges near MIDOT lines (Muskegon at Great Lakes field office location). OPUS Projects with Adjust Training at MIDOT offices Partnering with county governments and local surveyors to update the CORS in the state.
10 Setbacks: Michigan does not have one central agency that has legislative control over the state. Different departments have different standards than MIDOT Finding a major funding source that is consistent for year to year operation.
