Global Positioning System

JVS is able provide accurate and fast location to the Geodetic National Grid, and to Ordnance Datum by means of Global Positioning.  This is carried out using the latest GPS Real Time Kinematic equipment, incorporating “Smartnet” technology (Leica 1200 Series).

This system provides accuracies of up to 5mm in x, y co-ordinates and 10mm in z co-ordinates.

Most topographical and hydrographical surveys can be carried out using GPS equipment, providing a fast and cost effective system.

In some situations, GPS can be mounted directly to our quad bike, to give extremely rapid spot level coverage of open areas.
