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)

FIG Working Week 2020: Take the Stage in Amsterdam!

Have you always dreamed about taking the stage? Geospatial surveyors now have a perfect opportunity to do so in the Dutch city of Amsterdam! Submit your abstract before 1 November for a chance to share your views, project results and latest research related to 'Smart Surveying for Land & Water Management' during the FIG Working Week 2020. The event will be held at the RAI Convention Centre in Amsterdam from 10-14 May 2020. Surveyors are playing an increasingly important role in land & water management, especially as our countries need protection from the effects of climate change: sea-level rise, floods, droughts...

Survey Earth in a Day

On the day of the solstice, 21 June 2013, geospatial professionals around the world and members of Land Surveyors United - a global support network for land surveyors - will once again be simultaneously recording survey-grade GPS data from thousands of points around the globe, in order to gain a more accurate understanding of the Earth's surface. The first annual Survey Earth in a Day event was successful in establishing many new understandings between geospatial and geomatics professionals and the general public on geospatial issues. The mission aims not only to learn more about the Earth's surface but also to... (read more)

ESRI's Survey and GIS Summit 2005 Includes Engineering and Engineering Design

The ESRI Survey and GIS Summit 2005 will now include engineering and engineering design tracks and presentations. The summit, taking place 23-26 July 2005, brings professionals together with the goal of bridging the gap between surveying, engineering, and GIS technology. Expanding the Survey and GIS Summit is a natural progression because both the surveying and engineering industries employ GIS technology to manage or create geographic data. Surveyors use precise instruments, procedures, and computations to accurately locate and define geographic features while conducting field surveys that range from cadastral to engineering construction layout. Engineers design and build structures and infrastructures on... (read more)

Wales' Highest Building Mapped

Ordnance Survey's team of surveyors have mapped the detail of Wales' highest building. The recently opened GBP8.4 million visitor centre on the summit of Snowdon has been mapped by the national map maker, making it the highest structure to be captured. At 1,065m (3,560ft) above sea level, the building includes a cafe, shop area and interpretation space.     The building was officially opened at the beginning of June 2009 and a team of surveyors from Ordnance Survey had already been there to capture the detail.   Steve Roddick, Surveyor responsible for collecting the building details, said that with traditional...
