Re: Survey Coordinate entry. RTK GPS and even drone, help...

Just a further follow up post. First, HUGE thanks to Emmanuel who did all the heavy lifting to integrate this new approach into the software! I was expecting this to be a long term project and it is already available. Since it is now possible, a little more info is needed if anyone is interested in ...

Re: Survey Coordinate entry. RTK GPS and even drone, help...

Status update... if you have read this far then you are interested and I should follow through and keep things up to date... Last Saturday I redid a survey at the lake. new data, better data (in RTK terms the data points were solution status FIX vs float meaning they should be cm accurate...) Since ...

Re: Survey Coordinate entry. RTK GPS and even drone, help...

I was at the site today and wanted to redo the coordinates I had that were Float (less accurate) vs Fix from the original survey and it was really calm and things were working well so I just redid the survey completely. Attaching the CSV file. There were issues with elevation in the previous survey,...

Re: Survey Coordinate entry. RTK GPS and even drone, help...

Thanks Emmanuel.

I am also looking into command line utilities that may work to convert the GOS data to XYZ data. I will keep you informed on my progress.

Any thoughts on this survey approach in general?

Re: Survey Coordinate entry. RTK GPS and even drone, help...

I have to say this looks promising as a survey approach. I have spent countless hours with a partner where one is on the total station and the other moves the prism around the lake. This approach can be done by a single person. The base is placed in a fixed location. The rover is moved from ball to ...

Re: Survey Coordinate entry. RTK GPS and even drone, help...

Here is the RTK GPS survey data for the slalom course. Will follow up with the survey data from total station when I get that file. I have named all the elements as per your software. Should be easy to correlate. This is in LLH format. See what you think... I am looking at LLH to ECEF conversion too...

Have done the traditional total station survey but have not done the GPS survey yet. Hopefully will have time this week.

Re: Survey Coordinate entry. RTK GPS and even drone, help...

That will take longer to get but that can and will be done. Won't happen this weekend as the total station is off at another site doing a survey... Completely understand where you are coming from on this request.

Re: Survey Coordinate entry. RTK GPS and even drone, help...

I am 100% on board with working with you on this! I will get you a full slalom course survey to start with. Will name each point exactly as they are in the homologation software to simplify and eliminate confusion. The survey I will provide will be from a real course that we just put in through the ...

Re: Survey Coordinate entry. RTK GPS and even drone, help...

Thanks Emmanuel for the prompt reply and the willingness to look at this option. I will do a full GPS survey of our slalom course and provide the GPS coordinates. I believe there are ways to convert the GPS to XY coordinates and then enter them in using that approach but every additional step (i.e. ...

Survey Coordinate entry. RTK GPS and even drone, help...

Surveying is very time consuming. With RTK (Real Time Kinematics) GPS getting considerably cheaper it would be nice to be able to enter GPS coordinates for the data. A pair of RTK GPS units can literally be had for under $500 that can provide cm accuracy survey points. It literally should allow you ...
