Simultaneous Survey Across Fifty States

Hundreds of surveyors from all around the United States joined NOAA's National Geodetic Survey on Saturday 19th March at exactly 1PM EDT. It was the first ever 'Surveying USA Day', a kick-off event commemorating Surveyor's Week, coordinated by the National Society of Professional Surveyors. Professional, government and independent surveyors collected global positioning system (GPS) data simultaneously using various methods including handheld GPS devices and more sophisticated surveying equipment.     As a result, NOAA is expecting a large influx of data submitted to its Online Positioning User Service (OPUS), new database tool that allows surveyors, engineers, and other users to...

Trimble TDL 450H Long-range Radio

Trimble has introduced the Trimble TDL 450H radio, a long-range solution in the Trimble TDL 450 radio modem series designed to support high-precision Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) surveying applications. The Trimble TDL 450H is a 2-35 Watt (user programmable) radio transceiver. Its 35W of power maximises range, enabling work in difficult terrain and urban areas. The multi-function user interface streamlines field configuration and troubleshooting so surveyors can maintain maximum productivity. The radio modem allows users to adapt as conditions require: for longer baselines surveyors can dial up the power, and when the work area is smaller, a lower power... (read more)
