"After re-reading your initial inquiry it appears I may have gotten off track from your problem. Sorry if any of my comments confuse you more. "

Jim Ratermann replied to Achilles Nizamopoulos's discussion survce localization problem
"In my research, it seems the overall opinion of most surveyors is that when the job stretches for larger areas (miles/acres) Grid to Ground should be checked for tighter results. If you do enable it make sure you tap on the icon to the right of the…"

"..Interesting discussions for sure. While I am over a week late on some additional input, perhaps I can contribute. I have read (most of) the responses and continue to learn from the great input fellow surveyors have provided. To the issue at hand,…"

Jim Ratermann replied to Lalith Senanayake's discussion What is the most common thing among SURVEYORS! ? "A sharp EYE"?
"That "Sharp Eye" has also been credited for causing the affliction of 'Crosshair Pupils'. I am doomed/blessed from heretoforevermore of seeing life through a target scope.  "

"Hi Dan,   I guess I mis-informed my intentions of these observations. Perhaps if I had taken the time to obtain a high quality solution to cross reference that would indeed answer my question(s). I was after an apples to apples comparison from…"

Dan Schwartz replied to Jim Ratermann's discussion OPUS corrections
"If your wanting higher accuracy then you should not be using the Rapid Static OPUS solution.  Time is very critical in determining the level of accuracy of your solution.  The standard OPUS-S solution, which requires at least 2 hour…"

adam Cralle replied to Jim Ratermann's discussion OPUS corrections
"AS FAR AS ARP, ECT..., YOU SHOULD USE A RINEX FORMAT AND CONSULT YOUR  MANUFACTURER FOR THE CORRECT ARP AND ANTENNA NAME. IF THAT IS CORRECT, YOU ELIMINATE ANY "SETTINGS" QUESTIONS FROM YOUR PROBLEM. THIS IS A GPS STANDARD. END OF…"

adam Cralle replied to Jim Ratermann's discussion OPUS corrections
"an OPUS  solution is really just a 3-point re-section.  To achieve even greater accuracy you need to observe a closed loop network to each desired rrp so you check your closure.  - ONE THING YOU CANT DO WITH AN OPUS SOLUTION."
