Positioning Services – who uses what?

11 July 2016

examplesThose mapping golf courses, especially for TV coverage of events, choose to use a Trimble Geo7x with CenterPoint RTX for mapping the outlines of greens and bunkers. This 4cm positioning service eliminates a ‘hexagonal’ effect when mapping these areas instead producing a smooth outline.

For Mark Humphrey, Director of L&SS and the first KOREC customer to invest in Trimble’s R10 GNSS, xFill has proved particularly useful. At the time of purchase Mark was working as an ‘on call’ surveyor on the £1.5bn DP world owned London Gateway project. He couldn’t afford to have down time and cited one of the most productive benefits of the R10 as being its high accuracy (used in conjunction with Trimble VRS Now) and its xFill technology which allowed him to survey continuously, even when the size of stockpiles interfered with the radio link to the base station. A fully case study can be read here.

Oxford University has been working in Greece using a Trimble R10 GNSS in conjunction with CenterPoint RTX for archaeology surveys. It’s proved a great back up when they are out of their base’s range.

The RSPB favours a Trimble R1 with ViewPoint RTK for affordable 1 metre accuracy on a project in the South Atlantic.

The Highways Agency has 100+ Trimble VRS Now licenses delivering centimetre accuracy on demand for the Police to use their GNSS receivers easily and accurately to survey road incidents as quickly as possible to reduce congestion.
