From surveying to monitoring in 3 easy steps
Being a surveyor is the best job in the world. The days are never the same, each one brings a new challenge that needs to be resolved, unknown environment to be explored and a heavy responsibility on the shoulders that can only get unloaded with a job well done. Surveyors are also superheroes, often supporting other engineering sciences with little credit. Still, they are the ones who make sure that a bridge being built from both sides meets in the middle, and that a tunnel being bored from each side of the mountain doesn’t result in two tunnels.
Surveyors may seem fearless, but there is one task that has a “kryptonite” effect on them, at least until they realise that the shiny green stone is, in fact, an emerald: MONITORING! It is often perceived as a “freaky thing no one understands” and there is even a special breed of surveyors called “monitoring specialists”, capable of mo
Increased ionospheric activity can have a significant impact on GNSS signal positioning and tracking performance. The ionosphere, which extends from an altitude of approximately 50 km to approximately 1000 km, affects the propagation of GNSS signals, which can result in an ionospheric delay proportional to the total electron content (TEC) along the path of transmission. the signal. In addition, localized irregularities in electron density cause rapid temporal fluctuations in both the amplitude and phase of the GNSS signals, known as ionospheric scintillation. To mitigate the effects of increased ionospheric activity on high-precision GNSS performance, it is recommended to follow certain steps such as using the latest firmware version on all GNSS sensors, using multi-constellation, using multi-frequency GNSS observations and RTK corrections, use the default elevation cut angle of 10 degrees, among others. However, it is important to note that in extreme scintillation scenarios,
