This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Coordinate Metrology Systems Conference (CMSC), a notable accomplishment for any organization fueled by volunteers. Hosted by the Coordinate Metrology Society, the 2009 Conference was held at the Marriott downtown in Louisville, Kentucky. Even with the economic downturn, the event held its own with visitors traveling from Switzerland, Italy, France, Germany, Australia, Japan, Canada, United Kingdom, United States, and more.

History of the CMSC
In 1984, a small group of ASPRS/ACSM (American Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing/American Congress of Surveying and Mapping) attendees gathered in San Antonio, Texas. They expressed concern that their measurement problems were not being addressed by the rest of the surveying and photogrammetry community. This occasion marked the beginning of the CMSC.
