GPS Surveys

gps-surveysThrough the use of GPS surveying and the latest  GPS survey technology from Leica Geosystems, Terrain Surveys can provide you with reliable coordinate data from the Ordnance Survey active GPS network , global WGS84 system or to a local grid. Using RTK surveying techniques we are able to obtain OS grid coordinates and levels rapidly with reliable accuracy.

Now that Ordnance Survey benchmarks are no longer supported as a reliable height reference, using GPS may be the only way to establish OS height information on your site, which is vital if you are carrying out work such as a flood risk assessment. Our accurate GPS surveys show physical features on the ground and can be linked to any asset data or related information with OS coordinates.

Combining surveyed information with background OS mapping, which can be provided, we can assist with boundary issues or with the process of determining legal boundaries.

GPS surveys can provide you with a solution for many aspects of your topographical survey requirements with applications including:

  • High order control networks
  • Greenfield and brownfield sites
  • River cross sections
  • Route surveys
  • Volumetric surveys
  • Quarry surveys
  • Borehole location
  • Height control
  • Setting out

With rapid data capture and an instant result for coordinated survey data, we can provide you with final survey information extremely quickly. Post processing is required for high order control networks with precise results computed on dedicated GPS survey software. Our surveyors on site can work independently from eachother, allowing for greater productivity.
