What is GPS base station?

What is a base station? A base station is a GPS receiver that collects GPS measurements at a known location. Its main components are an antenna, a GPS receiver, and a device to which the GPS data is logged – most often a personal computer.

What is CORS GPS?

The use of Continuously Operating Reference Stations (CORS) enables surveyors to differentially correct static Global Positioning System (GPS) measurements. CORS are designed to support the broad spectrum of post-processed, relative GPS techniques, and applications.

What is the CORS network?

A Continuously Operating Reference Station (CORS) network is a network of RTK base stations that broadcast corrections, usually over an Internet connection.

What does a triangle mean in surveying?

Triangulation is a surveying method that measures the angles in a triangle formed by three survey control points. Using trigonometry and the measured length of just one side, the other distances in the triangle are calculated.

What government agency manages the CORS across the US?

NOAA’s National Geodetic Survey (NGS) manages the National and Cooperative CORS (Continuously Operating Reference Stations) program. CORS comprises a nationwide network of permanently operating Global Positioning System (GPS) receivers.

What does N f mean on a survey?

Now or Formerly
N/F – Now or Formerly.

What is a RTK base station?

Real Time Kinematic (RTK) Real Time Kinematic is a technique used to increase the accuracy of GNSS positions using a fixed base station, that wirelessly sends out correctional data to a moving receiver.

What does a geodetic marker look like?

Today in the United States, the most common geodetic survey marks are cast metal disks with stamped legends on their face set in rock ledges, embedded in the tops of concrete pillars, or affixed to the tops of pipes that have been sunk into the ground.
