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.…Read more →

When I started my career, I have been attracted by one (of many) question : how accurate is the surface/volume calculations knowing the uncertainties of the points that define these geometrical figures. I really wanted to know in term of standard deviation what would be the "end results".
The solution was to propagate the variances (standard deviation squared) into the functional model (the…Read more →
Good news for all of you who are using a GNSS RTK without the fancy tilt meter and IMU onboard !
You can turn your today GNSS receiver to do the "free bubble style" by mixing up 2 technologies that popped up last year.
The first one is about software receiver as we learnt we can feed the digital signal…Read more →

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…Read more →

Aside from our growing collection of Survey Marker Photos (photos tagged 'marker' inside the community), occasionally we will share marker photos on our Facebook Page which…Read more →
Plotting while measuring saves time and make the drawing accurate with no ambiguities. Creating accurate drawings is painless with a Bluetooth enabled DISTO device. If you paired the Distometer with AutoCAD mobile app, the Plotting can be done simultaneously.
First turn on Bluetooth in both devices and pair them. See the image below.…Read more →

I stumbled upon a few interesting books that you may find as interesting as I have. These books will be particularly interesting to geodetic surveyors and those surveyors across the planet who annually participate in Survey Earth in a Day. Flat- Earthers may find them to challenge their theories.

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…Read more →
While doing a little research into search trends for Land Surveying and Land Surveyors using Google trends, it is quite interesting to see that overall, searches for land surveyors worldwide have gone down significantly since 2008. Would you venture to state your opinion as to why this might be the case?…Read more →
