**NAVD**88 is one of five current National Geodetic Datums, which are coordinate systems that act as standard reference lines to measure points on the earth’s surface in the region that they apply. A datum cannot be seen or physically measured because is a calculation of the Geoid/Mean Seal**Level**(MSL), which is the average global height of the ...Both NAVD 88 and NGVD 29 are geodetic datums,

**a reference surface of zero elevation**to which heights are referred to over a large geographic extent. A tidal datum is a standard elevation framework used to track local water levels as measured by a tidal gauging station.People also ask

**NAVD**88 means that the values we associate with the height of water – what many people think of as mean sea**level**– will change. Within the SFWMD boundaries, measurements of water**levels**in**NAVD**88 will be approximately -0.6 feet to -1.8 feet lower than they are in NGVD 29, as**elevation**difference varies by geographic location.As you may know, base flood elevations, and therefore

**elevation**certificates, used to be based on NAVD29 (which was created**in**1929), but are now typically based on NAVD88, which was established**in**1988. Though we rarely see it spelled out,**NAVD**stands for National Geodetic Vertical Datum.To calculate the elevation in NAVD 88, add the conversion factor to the existing elevation. For example, assume the existing elevation in NGVD 29 is

A building finished floor elevation is shown on an existing elevation certificate as 10.0’ NGVD. The equivalent NAVD

**88**elevation can be obtained using the FEMA-approved average conversion factor in the following formula: NAVD 88 = NGVD 29 + conversion factor NAVD 88 = 10.0’ NGVD + (-1.51)For example, zero in the Chicago City Datum (zero feet above Lake Michigan) equates to

**579.48 feet**above zero (“mean sea level”) in NGVD 29. If one tries to compare a ground elevation in Chicago City Datum to a flood elevation in NGVD 29, the**579-foot**difference will make it readily apparent that something is off.Within the boundaries of the District, the NAVD 88 elevation number is a shift of

**approximately 0.7 to 1.1 feet lower**that the elevation in the NGVD 29 standard. This variation is due to geographical differences. For example, a water level for Lake Panasoffkee of 39.24 feet in NGVD 29 will be 38.36 in the NAVD 88 standard.Mar 02, 2017 · tagged with how to find
