Surveyors, are you spending a lot of field time on repetitive tasks when performing topographic surveys?
In construction, engineering and many other industries, it’s essential to have a way to validate the accuracy of measuring and surveying data. Even minuscule inaccuracies can lead to flaws, project delays, higher costs and unhappy clients — design errors in construction, for example, can increase costs by around 7%.
Surveyors… Do you use the National Geodetic Survey’s “OPUS” service for post processing data? Did you know Trimble Business Center can streamline this and help avoid file conversion hassles, antenna height errors, and other possible issues? This month’s video shows how to use TBC for sending GNSS data files to the free NGS “OPUS” service for post processing.
In our previous video tip, we showed how TBC’s “Processing Services” routine can be used to easily send Trimble GNSS raw static data files to the National Geodetic Survey’s “OPUS” service for post-processing. In this installment, we’ll show how a processed OPUS result can be conveniently imported straight from your email back into TBC, then be used to refine the coordinates of an RTK survey originally performed using an autonomous “here” base position!
