Verticle, GPS is seems undesirable at times. 1/4" - 2' variables. Not good when your putting in Pavement grades, our control. Any one have insight here. I have had time of hitting right on but the hit and miss has got to go , Right?

How do I join the GPS group?

While getting our GPS configured and online I was told by a helpline that our software was the only thing that they could help me with as the equipment I was using wasn't supported by them. SO, it is HUGE to realize what works may not be your best choice! I now realize my equipment needs to have relative software to the equipment I am using. So if your decision of software is not the same as your manufacturer it may work but be prepared. I was seemingly dead in the water. Yes can't always be the case I know to have apples with apples and oranges with oranges, BUT it sure makes sense to have a the software and hardware from the same manufacturer.

How tight is your measurments readings. Horizontal x Vertical. I am not getting any closer than two hundrethsx3hundreths on most cases. Not good enough for many of the jobs I do. However its okay for adding control and then calibrating the points into the jobs. Anyone have any input?

I am have been surveying with GPS over the lasy 4 years. Seems like the world as a whole has discovered GPS with all the on board versions for cars etc. I am using the Trimble 5800 along with a Trimble TSC2 Data collector. I have been working in the field with the idea of integreation. As Gary said dreams do come true. trimble is taking the GPS and matching it with the Trimble S6 Total Station and making an anything goes survey setup. You can do anything with this setup. I will keep you posted.

GPS who would have thought it would possible.
Reply by Gary Breisch on November 17, 2008 at 4:12pm
visit my website at www.gbreisch.com your homework assignment is to tell me what SAGES means and if you can, let me know your ideas on how we can make it happen. Just recently, NGS has made the Control System available on Google Earth - see how they did it - it is the closest thing to SAGES happening as I type this message. Let me know you are interested by sending me an email and I will forward you the free tools to start using it. Now we need to figure out how we can build and bank information that can be inserted in KML language that will be displayed and accessible for details in those cute bubbles that come up when you pic a point from the aerial view provided free by Google Earth as I predicted many months before it actually happened. Dreams do come true if you really want them to as in "The Science of Success" book and "The Secret" movie.
