GPS elevation issues

Hello all,I am wondering if there are any other users out there with a Spectra SP80 GNSS receiver having issues with elevations in their survey data. We are adjusting to a published benchmark elevation after running our Static over said benchmark for 20-30 minutes as a standalone survey and are tying down project control with both our Total Station and GPS receiver as well as running level loops over our initial control to establish elevations for the total station points. Overall, our projects…See More

"Try a diferential measuring beginning at an good benchmark, and apply the best geoid model that you can afford, things will be better¡¡¡"

"Two words: geoid model. You might also be adding to errors by using multiple base stations / reference systems."
