More on the GPS Surveying Systems
Present day surveying systems are designed for demanding surveying applications. Here are some common applications of GPS surveying systems -
• Even the entry level systems provide a good blend of centimeter-level and post-processed static survey capabilities with real-time mapping and navigation.
• The latest surveying systems come with signal prediction for intermittent RTK signals, helping them to continue working despite an interruption.
• With the latest CMRx protocol, maximum compression can be obtained for optimizing communications bandwidth, and all the signals and satellites (currently in view) can be utilized in the best possible manner.
• Most surveying systems support a wide range of satellite signals ranging from GPS L2C and L5, GLONASS L1/L2 signals, down to the experimental GIOVE-B, and GIOVE-A test satellites for testing purposes as well as signal evaluation.
• A built-in TX/RX UHF radio in any GPS surveying system provides high levels of flexibility for base/rover operation.
• GPS surveying units are also helpful in assessment of status of base receivers and remote configurations; post processing data can be downloaded and additional trips can be saved.
Additional features of GPS Surveying Systems include land navigation screens, and built-in map databases that allow users to track their position on highways, waterways, and even railways, while displaying bearing, heading, distance and speed.
