"We take the avg. of each OPUS combined factor. EX. say you did 4 statics youd want to avg. those 4 combined factors for one combined factor."

Nicolas replied to Bill Osborne's discussion OPUS collection interval error
"Indeed. Just be sure to localize your statics for a solid baseline. .12' from opus to opus is not terrible. doing this will make all points collected after wards within a .05' from each other and not your .12' "
