A GNSS receiver has to take a lot of information, sort through it and use only the best data to generate a solution. In this article we go over how it does that.
RTK and static measurements can give you similar data, but are collected in very different ways. Learn more about what difference it can make for you.
A lot of us take modern surveying software for granted. The ease of use and tools available make it possible to do what was only previous possible in office software packages. However, with the discontinuation of Windows Mobile by Microsoft, the surveying industry is going to have to pivot from Windows Mobile. This means that […]
The GPS III satellites are here, and they make a difference to your RTK solutions. The S631 can use the Block 3 satellites new signals, can your reciever? What is GPS III GPS 3 is the newest itteration of GPS satellite to be launched into space, and as the name suggests is the third itteration. […]
RTK receivers can be a large and intimidating investment for a land surveyor. Ensuring you get the most out of this equipment, and extend the life span as long as possible is crucial in ensuring that you get the most out of your investment. In this article, I am going to cover 4 things you […]
As one of our support technicians, there are multiple parts of this job that keeps it entertaining and fresh. There is always some new problem, or new question that keeps me on my toes. GNSS equipment is constantly evolving and there is always something to learn. No two calls are ever the same, and there […]
Lately, I have had several questions in regards to the difference between Hemisphere’s 6th generation RTK receiver the S321+, and their 7th generation S631. Therefore, I thought it was high time to clarify the differences between the two and clear up any misconceptions that may be out there. At a glance, the S631 and S321+ […]
One of the most important aspects of RTK GPS and RTK systems in general is understanding how they work. This doesn’t mean understanding the complex mathematical formulas that go on in the software to ensure reliable and consistent communication between base stations and satellites however. It is a much more practical understanding of how to […]
Whether it is the GPS in our phones or the RTK GPS in our surveying equipment, it is hard to deny that satellite constellations are a part of our daily lives in a rather significant way. Since the first satellites launched back in the late 70s, the applications for positioning satellites have only grown, as […]
There are many aspects to RTK GPS, but that just makes it all the more interesting. As this industry continues to grow and expand, it begins to venture into new territories and new technologies. New technologies like drones, for instance. Drones with RTK GPS capabilities are becoming more popular because they are convenient, easy to […]
