Global Positioning Systems (GPS)

gps-imgGPS refers to a satellite based measuring system that allows us to obtain centimeter accuracy measurements anywhere on the earth’s surface. This system allows us to perform surveys economically, accurately, and efficiently. GPS is quickly becoming one of the more frequently used surveying instruments today. With GPS, a surveyor can cover more ground in less time than other, more conventional methods. Complex surveys that once took many weeks to complete, can often be completed in a few days with a higher level of accuracy than ever before.
