Technology

Our work is as good as the technology we use, together with the experience and expertise of our team.  A whole new set of requirements has been placed on the 21st century surveyor.

 

To meet these needs we utilize the latest in survey equipment including:

 

Trimble Total Stations

A robotic total station for specialized high-precision applications providing the capability to measure distances to an accuracy of +/- 0.8 mm +1 ppm.  This enables our land survey crews to work more productively and to seamlessly integrate with complimentary technologies on the job site.

Real Time Kinematic Global Positioning Systems

Real Time Kinematic GPS Surveying and the Can-Net Base Station Network

Zephyr Geodetic Antennas

A breakthrough in survey GPS antenna technology. The antenna incorporates technology for extremely low mulitpath, outstanding low elevation tracking and sub-millimeter phase center accuracy.

Automated and Reflectorless Total Stations

Digital Levels

Bentley In Roads Survey

A software application that enables us to transfer data from electronic fieldbooks to the MicroStation or AutoCAD environments reducing time to complete the drawings with interactive data editing.

MicroSurvey and StarNet calculation software

Autodesk AutoCAD

A labour saving software application used from survey, design and analysis to drafting and construction documentation.

MicroStation V8

We use the most powerful, accessible and interoperable CAD platform to produce our survey designs.

PIMARC

A management control software program that tracks client projects to ensure on prompt and cost efficient delivery.

GLONASS (Global Navigation Satellite System)

GLONASS is a Russian satellite-based navigation system which is the only alternative navigational system to the Global Positioning System (GPS) in operation; providing comparable precision and global coverage.
