  5. Errors in Total Station Measurements


    Lately I have seen heated discussion on LinkedIn about staking out in construction (typically hold down bolts) with pictures of residuals at 0.000m and sometimes great looking accessories to help with the prism stability. I'd like to share some thoughts on a more fundamental level about measuring to tight tolerances using total stations and maybe in future posts extend into my recommendations for high accuracy staking out and total station calibration in particular.

    The measurement of a total station is typically made up of two components:
    1. The angular measurement
    2. The distance measurement

    The angular measurement, split into two components, the vertical angle and the
    horizontal angle are governed by very fine angle encoders and typically the accuracy is quoted in

  6. From surveying to monitoring in 3 easy steps

    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

  7. Impact of increased ionospheric activity upon high-precision GNSS


    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,
