Leica Technology Helps Implementing Digital City Concept in Kunming, China

Kunming Surveying and Mapping Institute (China) has successfully established the first Leica Geosystems GPS reference station network in Kunming for pushing forward the digital city project in Kunming. This project started in March 2004 by constructing totally six GPS reference stations, a data centre operating with network RTK software and a tailor-made data communication network. The whole system was completed in May 2005. This GPS reference station network is now able to serve various applications and needs including city planning, surveying and mapping, land management, construction, structural & disaster monitoring, navigation and fleet management. The Kunming GPS network is operated... (read more)
