Learn how to set up a GNSS control survey for success (Cadastral or Engineering). Hands on Post Processing of static data and investigate that data for possible errors. Work with both RINEX and raw GNSS data. Use post processed results in a Least Squares Adjustment (LSA software will either be Leica Infinity or MicroSurveys StarNet – depending on the student requirements) and learn how to interpret the results. Free Demo licenses will be available for hose without access to the software.

What you'll learn:

How to Plan a Static job

How to execute the job in the field

Importing and Processing data (hands on) in Leica Infinity

Least Square Adjustment of data

Result Interpretation

NOTE: while the post processing of data is in Leica Infinity- all manufacturers RINEX data can be supported, hence open to all.

Duration: 1 Day
Cost: $1,500
