(2) Reach RS (Edison chips)
(1) as the BASE
(1) as the ROVER
LoRa communication between them.
Just to make sure everything is ok here, got a question to help clarify things.
Set my BASE up anywhere in the area of work with best clear sky view and highest elevation.
I let it AVERAGE SINGLE for a few minutes. (not using NTRIP CORS) (I mark where the BASE is physically for day 2 work)(note: In my case I do NOT need to use a KNOWN POINT from public or surveyor provided records etc to set on. I generally localize using FieldGenius for each new project).
I get a FIX on my ROVER and can start collecting and staking points as needed usually within a couple minutes depending on conditions.
Should I be writing down my BASE coords/ellipsoid height?
And/or use (and write down):
Save averaged position to manual
After you have successfully obtained averaged position you might want to save it for future use. Click on the “save coordinates” icon and position will be saved as if it was entered in manual mode. Now every time Reach starts it will broadcast this position in correction messages.
Since all my ROVER measurements will be RELATIVE to the BASE (and whatever coords it’s averaged SINGLE at start), if I return the next day (if not finished the 1st day), Can I just set the BASE on the SAME MARK as the day before, or wouldn’t my new 2nd day measurements be offset incorrectly in relation to the BASE even if placed physically on the same mark since it is AVERAGING SINGLE again on Day 2?
Or should I be entering the AVERAGE SINGLE coords and ellipsoid height (from Day 1) MANUALLY for Day 2 and any consecutive days after? Kind as if I had a KNOWN point, and just use this everyday at the project at the start.
Seems I should be, but just want to get professional clarification.
Thanks everyone, much appreciated!
PS. I am also wondering if @agrimgalina was having this problem a couple days ago because of what I am describing. Maybe he measured points in an earlier point in time using AVERAGE SINGLE (BASE), returned at a later point in time, AVERAGE SINGLE (BASE) again instead of using the recorded point and therefore his measurements are off? I want to prevent this. Again, what I do is not professional survey related, so no worries! ; )
