Event: CIT hosting launch of Enhanced Surveying and Mapping Technology
Friday, 29 January 2010
Topcon Ireland , with its partners CIT and Ordnance Survey Ireland (OSI) are holding an open day in CIT on Thursday 29th January to launch the RTK Network solution, TopNET+. More than twenty professionals from the Munster region are already registered for the event.
TopNET+ is Topcon's dedicated GNSS network correction service, available to all subscribers using a GNSS receiver unit and a mobile data connection. This represents a significant enhancement to surveying and mapping facilities available in Ireland.
Land surveying and mapping professionals, from both private and public sectors are expected to attend the presentations and demonstration at CIT’s Bishopstown Campus. It will provide an opportunity for professionals to upskill in the highly specialised and advanced technology of Global Positioning Systems (GPS).
With TopNET+, users can carry out their usual surveying activities without the need for a GNSS base station, as network corrections are supplied to the rover using a low cost GPRS connection, offering real time positioning in any appropriate coordinate system.
