I am NOT a surveyor nor claim to be. I am not compensated in any way to impersonate one either.
It’s all for a great learning experience here to be utilized in other fields of interest. If I decide to become a registered land surveyor, I will obviously take the proper route. ; )
Using the website below, I have located some Geodetic Marks in the area that have GPS and Vertical Control. United States.
Obviously, the NGS Data Sheet has all the information needed. i.e. NAD83 position, NAV88 orthometric height, ellipsoidal height, geoid height, etc.
I have (2) Reach RS receivers (BASE / ROVER) and all necessary equipment (i.e. bipod, tripod, data collector(s), FieldGenius, etc.
I know I can set manually on that known point (convert NAD83 data sheet position to WGS84 LLH) in ReachView and collect points in this area within the LoRa radio range or NTRIP, CORS etc. But using LoRa as convenient.
What is the proper procedure to measure this Geodetic Mark to compare what I get and what was recorded in the NGS Data Sheet?
From what I understand, OPUS does not work with SINGLE BAND receivers such as Emlid Reach RS. But does with the RS2.
Also, simply, what is the VERTICAL ORDER? i.e. first, third, etc?
