A GPS system is commonly used for survey and set out covering all aspects of survey requirements thereby making it another critical piece of equipment for surveyors. A typical GPS setup may consist of a Leica Viva GS15 base station and rover system, although various other Leica GPS combinations may be used to deal with connection or range issues.
Engineering Surveying is the broad term used to describe the work of surveyors on civil engineering jobs. The role of an engineering surveyor is a lot larger than simply set out for construction of a structure and survey pick-ups. Engineering Surveyors will usually be the professionals who first examine a finished design for a project and often will identify any design or practicality issues.
This highly sophisticated instrument is arguably a surveyor’s most important piece of equipment. In order to complete the most demanding jobs in residential or commercial surveying it is important to utilise the very latest in robotic total stations. This also provides an edge to keep ahead of competitors in the survey market.
