"Oops ... I mis-confused your request about monitoring ! So you are looking for a tracking system ? Topcon is doing so and also Trimble ... so Leica will follow and it would cost 50$ to install a chipset GNSS receiver and transfer the data to a…"

"Dear Christian, I wrote several software for handling Leica Total Station so if needed do not hesitate to contact me while GeoMoS will do the job but it's rather expensive and probably not as appropriated for your applications ?"

TRIMBLE PATHFINDER IN MY DAUGHTER HANDS

Great picture ... taken in 1992 with my daughter handling a GPS PATHFINDER.At that time no real time correction (except from rare L-Band provider) and only post-processing if needed.26 years after what has changed ? More GNSS constellations, cheaper…

FROM BASE STATION TO GNSS NETWORK ... HOW DEPENDING ARE YOU ON POSITIONING INFRASTRUCTURES ?

Posted on February 2, 2018 at 11:52am 0 Comments

Most of the GNSS Network RTK projects have been developed by the economical justification that an active geodetic network would reduce the cost of maintaining a traditional geodetic network where the maintenance of the benchmarks and the control survey were a significant part of the ownerís budget.…

UNCERTAINTY ON SURFACE/VOLUME CALCULATIONS

Posted on January 29, 2018 at 9:38am 2 Comments

When I started my career, I have been attracted by one (of many) question : how accurate is the surface/volume calculations knowing the uncertainties of the points that define these geometrical figures. I really wanted to know in term of standard deviation what would be the "end results".

The solution was to propagate the variances (standard deviation squared) into the functional model (the…

Good news for all of you who are using a GNSS RTK without the fancy tilt meter and IMU onboard ! 

You can turn your today GNSS receiver to do the "free bubble style" by mixing up 2 technologies that popped up last year.

The first one is about software receiver as we learnt we can feed the digital signal…

THE DEAD END OF THE TRAVERSE METHOD

Posted on January 27, 2018 at 11:29am 0 Comments

One of the typical survey method for determining station's points and survey details has been the traverse method. There have been considerable discussions on the way to "adjust" angles and distances and lot of rules of thumb while rigorous Least Squares Adjustment softwares are available anywhere.

I would say "too much" talks and controversial exchanges for a method that is simply not appropriated anymore considering modern instruments. Long traverses (geodetic) have been…
