"Thanks for the answer Kevin, I really am a noob! I think I understand what you mean, although by the looks of it I am doing this when I get back to the office anyway. Longest GPS setting out points Draw line between Same TS points Draw line…"

"Thanks Lalith, I haven't seen this method before however it seems to make sense although I think I may be doing this when I get back to the office rather than on site.In the office: 1 - Take GPS data and draw a line between 2 longest setting…"

"Hi Paul, Thanks for the response. Im using a Leica GS08 GPS Pole with a bipod which is allowing me to setup over a nail, level the pole etc. Trying to fit the GPS to the total station? Wouldn't I need to do it the other way so as I can align…"

"Hi Keith, Are you using a base and rover setup or just a dial in? Have you applied scale factor to the instrument readings and are you using a transformation on the rover? The distance quoted is at the upper end of the gps accuracy and I think that…"

Aligning GPS Stations With Surveyed Total Station Positions

Hi,I am fairly new to surveying and have been thrown in the deep end on a job where I am having to combine GPS data taken with our companies Leica GS08 and a robotic total station (Leica TS15). The job is fairly small (less than 100 x 100 m site) so I dont think I need to apply any corrections to the GPS data.On the site I have been placing nails into the ground and surveying these positions with our GPS Leica GS08. I then take out our Leica TS15 to survey these positions in and continue the…See More

"Hi Nooby.. lol First of all you are not too far off in your desk-top adjustment method.  When I began combining GPS and Ground survey data some 25 years ago, I did the same thing. Second your perceived error of 0.032m total vs a point error…"
