Over the past decade Real Time Kinematic (RTK) surveying with Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) has become common practice in geomatics. RTK surveying can allow people to achieve relative positioning with centimetre (cm) precision, however there are several important factors that need to be considered and thus a need for a good guide of best practices (equipment calibration, errors, multipath, geometry, etc.). Therefore Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) put together a new set of guidelines for Real Time Kinematic (RTK) Surveying.

Total stations combine a number of technologies to achieve remarkable accuracy and reliability. The first, an extension of traditional transits and theodolites, is the ability to …
The total station can be used to survey in locations where you do not know the value of the point upon witch it is setup upon, this is known as Free Station Surveying. This survey technique is often used when you have two points with known established coordinate values but are not in an ideal […]
When the total station is set up and level over the known point it will require another known point to help calculate the coordinate reference system that the unknown measurements will be measured with. That is to say that the total station will be able to know the angular relation between the easting, northing and […]
Various user manuals that I refer to when working with Leica total stations (Some I created and others from Leica … ).
Using acronyms and abbreviations is commonly practiced in the Geomatics industry and most of the time people just assume that everybody else knows what every acronyms and abbreviation stands for. Well that is obviously not the case most of the time and over the years I have created myself a little digital cheat-sheet of geomatics acronyms and abbreviations that I use with my work in my writing.
