How to Find the Best Surveying Equipment for Sale


When it comes to choosing an RTK GPS device, the selection is wide. Several fantastic options exist to meet the needs of a diverse group of industries. While several options can meet the needs of many, sometimes it is necessary to choose a specific model when accuracy or another variable is important to the project. 

Understanding which piece of equipment is best for your needs can be difficult, as the RTK GPS industry is nothing if not nuanced and complex. There are ways, however, for you to narrow down your search. This includes looking at surveying equipment through several different utilities and comparing the effectiveness of each. Join us as we do just that below.

 How to Choose the Best RTK Surveying Equipment


If you are performing a general survey, you may not need RTK GPS. A simple theodolite or dumpy level may be all you need to map out a rough sketch of the area. However, if you need millimetre-level accuracy, it will be best to use a robotic total station. 


The cost of surveying equipment can be a relevant factor in determining the best option for you. Pre-owned RTK GPS is a great way to reduce the initial cost, for instance. 


Choosing the right survey equipment may also be a matter of necessity. For example, a company that only needs the equipment for a single project—as opposed to the needs of regular service—could use equipment rentals to offset the cost and still use the best equipment for the job.
