Waterways has recently purchased new state-of-the-art “Leica Geosystems” surveying equipment. The new robotic total station and GNSS RTK Rover will enhance our current surveying capabilities, allowing Waterways’ survey crews to work more productively and efficiently in the field. On many projects, the robotic total station can be operated by a one-person crew, reducing staff time and budget requirements. The GNSS RTK Rover is a completely wireless GPS network rover that allows our survey crews to conduct GPS surveys without the need for a base station. These survey instruments will be used to integrate conventional and GPS surveying on our projects to create top-quality mapping products.
