to measure more of the points in less than half the time com- pared to the GS14. “The advances in GNSS technology allow us to push boundaries,” says Kilburn. “So now we can go further than we could ever go before, and we’re able to work in environ- ments that were off limits to GNSS in the past.” Changing What We Measure and How Technology innovations such as the Leica GS18 I with vi- sual positioning significantly increase safety and efficiency onsite while enabling more comprehensive data capture. The most recent technology innovations—tilt compensa- tion and visual positioning— extend these capabilities exponentially by giving profes- sionals a way to measure tilt- compensated points without a magnetic compass and, in the case of the recently released GS18 I GNSS smart antenna, to measure points from imagery captured by simply walking around the project area.
A comparison between an older-model GNSS rover (GS14) and newer model (GS16) with L5 capabilities shows time savings and improved quality with the newer technology.
“Today’s GNSS capabilities aren’t just about overcoming previous limitations, but about changing what we canmeasure and howwe can measure it,”Kilburn says. “We can use technology to stay out of harm’s way, eliminate return trips to the field, maximize efficiency, create better synergy between the field and office, and provide significantly more value in our deliverables. The modernization of GNSS, combined with the continued innovation in GNSS smart antennas, creates new possibilities in surveying and engineering.” Watch the full webinar here or download the interactive PDF sum- mary.
