Analysis of Double Meridian Distance for a Closed Traverse Area towards Developing a Contour Map and Land

This research aimed to analyze double meridian distance for a closed traverse area in developing a land title for a proposed gymnasium in Qassim University. Total station, theodolite, leveling rod and steel tape plays an important role in measuring elevations, bearings, and distances of the boundaries of a lot. A contour map is necessary to determine the traces of level surfaces of successive elevation. This will enable to identify the type of contour map and type of contour lines…

OPUS post processing and static collection methods

I collected static data for the second time and again did not obtain a solution from any of the 4 control points when uploaded to OPUS rapid static.  I am using an R7 with a zephyr 2 gnss antenna.  The area I am collected is a somewhat clear area within a deciduous (no leaves) wooded area.  At least 10 satellites were tracked the entire time for all of the collection sessions.  I am pondering three things:  1. Should I try to collect for a longer period - maybe even 2 hours or more and…
