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

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.…

THE DEAD END OF THE TRAVERSE METHOD

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…

SECTION 179 TAX BENEFIT - Don't Miss Out

ONLY 28 DAYS REMAINING 

For those of you who do not know what Section 179 is, let me give you my simple definition:  Section 179 allows companies to deduct full purchase price of qualifying equipment or software that was financed or purchased during the tax year.  What this means in layman’s terms (which is the only way I know how to communicate effectively) is that if you bought, financed, or leased qualifying…
