The Global Positioning System, or GPS, is a group of 24 satellites that orbits the Earth every minute of every day. Each satellite broadcasts a unique signal which an Earth-based receiver reads to determine a position.
When Should You Use GPS?
GPS is not a direct replacement for a total station, the equipment used in conventional surveying. Rather, it is an additional tool that can be used to determine the coordinates of unknown points, particularly those that are very far apart or which are not in clear view.
Palmer Engineering utilizes dual frequency Trimble 4800 and 4000SSi Global Positioning System surveying receivers with Super-trakô technology. These state-of-the-art units let us perform fast-static and real-time kinematic surveys in many difficult-to-survey environments, such as under power lines, near trees, around airports, near radio and television transmitters and on radio-intensive construction sites.
