- Easy to use GNSS receiver for centimeter-level positioning
- Can also be used as a base station
- Built in battery allows field use for up to four hours
- Works with common GIS software for Android and iOS including SW Maps Android /iOS, Field Genius, SurvPC, Survey Master, Vespucci, QGIS, QField
The RTK Surveyor works with common GIS software for Android and iOS including SW Maps Android /iOS, Field Genius, SurvPC, Survey Master, Vespucci, QGIS, QField, and any GIS software that supports NMEA over Bluetooth.
This device can be used in four modes:
* GNSS Positioning (~30cm accuracy)
* GNSS Positioning with RTK (1.4cm accuracy)
* GNSS Base Station
* GNSS Base Station NTRIP Server
In **Position** mode the device receives L1/L2 signals from a user-provided antenna and the high-grade GNSS receiver provides lat/long and altitude with accuracies around 300mm.
In **Positioning with RTK** mode the device receives L1/L2 signals from the antenna and correction data from a base station. The correction data can be obtained from a cellular link to online correction sources or over a radio link to a 2nd RTK Surveyor setup as a base station.
In **Base Station** mode the device is mounted to a temporary position (like a tripod) and begins transmitting correction data over a radio or internet connection. A base is often used in conjunction with a second unit set to \'Positioning with RTK\' to obtain the 14mm relative accuracy.
In **Base Station NTRIP Server** mode the device is mounted to a semi or permanently fixed position (like a roof) and connects over WiFi to transmit the correction data to a NTRIP caster so that any rover can access the correction data over a cellular or internet connection. This type of base is a very easy way to setup a very precise absolute correction source.
Two cables are provided with the RTK Surveyor allowing a user to plug on our easy to use Serial Telemetry Radios or their own radio link. If a local correction source is within 10km, a user can also use their phone to provide correction data over the Bluetooth link (no external radio needed!).
