Nothing new here, just fully verified positions in crazy places! I have been showing my best friend (who is a Professional Surveyor as well) the capabilities of my Javad gear. He normally uses a VRS network rover along with a robotic total station. We have been using the Javad gear on certain jobs of his where he would normally have to use his total station and spend hours/days traversing to locate boundary corners and then stake property lines though the woods. I am able to do this with my Javad equipment much quicker than he can with his robotic total station and we have a lot more fun while doing so!
Thanks. I used to use my robot, but use my T1M on VRS now.
It is the second biggest pond hockey tournament in the US behind Eagle River.
That pic was a couple of years ago, but I had to pull up the pic for the visitors bureau this morning and thought I would toss it up here.
I will try to get a drone pic of this years in a couple of weeks. I will make a thread though as there is a story behind why I got involved.
Taking shots near base of cliffline on a Forest Service tract. Cliffs range from 60 feet to 100 feet high to the west. I had a good view of the south, southeast to northeast in tall relatively open timber. Some shots would not fix, so I'm going back again to get some PPK solutions when I have more time. Found an aluminum disc set in 1993 by the first party chief I worked for at the US Forest Service. The cap was set in an X made in 1940.
This is a very similar spot, and also clicking away (three observations with a horiz. spread of < 0.06'), under an 8" red cedar & surrounded by big pines.
By the way, I usually send these type pics out to the gang I know still using "yellow" GPS units...
