North Country Surveyors Warm-up to RTK

Along the border between extreme northern Maine and western New Brunswick, Canada, two surveyors, one Canadian and one American, have found a way to survey in the region's challenging conditions: using RTK. Faced with fewer control monuments, many lying beneath a cover of snow much of the year, limited cell-phone coverage; rugged terrain and UHF transmission limitations - the two men were led to the Ashtech Professional ProMark 500 RTK solution. Michael Cyr, owner of Northern Maine Surveyors in Madawaska, ME, USA, works across the St. John River border from Gaetan Soucy, proprietor of Arpentages Gaetan Soucy. Both are in... (read more)

MAX Industry Standard for Network RTK

The Master-Auxiliary Concept, jointly proposed and put forward by Leica Geosystems (Switzerland) and other members of the Radio Technical Commission for Maritime Services (RTCM), has been accepted as the basis of the RTCM V3.1 network messages – the first industry standard for Network RTK. During the RTCM SC104 meeting in May 2006, the proposed network RTK messages for RTCM V3 were finally approved and the decision taken to release them in the next update of RTCM – Version 3.1. The formal release of RTCM V3.1 is expected imminently, once editorial changes to the documentation are finalised. The RTCM V3.1 network... (read more)

SimActive Used to Validate Accuracy of DJI Phantom 4 RTK

SimActive, a Canadian deveoper of photogrammetry software, has announced that Correlator3D is being used in Japan for mapping projects acquired by the DJI Phantom 4 RTK. A full-scale validation was done in the mountains near Hiroshima with a unit flown by SimActive's Japanese partner Mirukuru and customer Ace-1. “Considering that the data was acquired and processed directly in the field in record time, the level of detail that is visible and measurable in Correlator3D is stunning,” said Mr Shinji Inaba, technical manager at Mirukuru.“We had independently set up five checkpoints and the residuals are consistently in the 5cm range, both...

Emlid Lauches Affordable Multi-band RTK GNSS Receiver

Emlid, the creators of Reach, a centimetre-accurate RTK GNSS receiver, recently launched their multi-band GNSS receiver Reach RS2. The new receiver features built-in LoRa radio, 3.5G modem and a survey app for iOS and Android. The Reach RS2 gets fixed solution in seconds and provides positional accuracy down to several millimeters. The receiver tracks GPS/QZSS (L1, L2), GLONASS (L1, L2), BeiDou (B1, B2), Galileo (E1, E5), and SBAS (L1C/A) and reliably works in RTK mode on distances up to 60 km, and 100km in PPK mode. Multi-feed antenna with multipath rejection offers robust performance, also in challenging conditions. RINEX raw... (read more)

Surveying UAS for Use with RTK Base Stations

Topcon Positioning Group and MAVinci have announced that the latest version of the Sirius Pro surveying unmanned aerial system (UAS) is designed to be compatible with existing real time kinematic (RTK) base stations or network transport of RTCM data over IP (NTRIP). The system will be available at the Intergeo trade show for geodesy in October and thereafter. The Topcon and MAVinci UAS was first introduced at Intergeo 2013 for the European market and was recently made available in the North American market. By connecting an external base station, Sirius Pro will receive the RTCM correction signals and deliver 2-5... (read more)
