Guidelines for the Use of the Vermont Coordinate System

The objective is to provide a source document for any organization or
political body wishing to regulate the use of the Vermont Coordinate
System, and as such, the impact of these standards is dependent on the
actions of those outside institutions. The reasons for utilizing the
Vermont (state plane) Coordinate System are:
1. To describe on a common datum, the position of points on,
above, or under the surface of the earth.
2. To perpetuate said positions in a convenient format.
3. To standardize the location of objects, points, and other
entities, as recorded in geographic/ land information systems,
(G/LIS) and other spatially related databases, for use in analytic
and mapping applications.
4. To facilitate future survey retracement of land boundaries.
