I want to set an RS2 receiver over a known point to serve as a base for RTK point captures.
The coordinates for my known location are in NAD 83 (horizontal) and NAVD 88 (vertical). The unit of measurement is US Feet.
It is my understanding that I need to convert my horizontal coordinates to lat/long. I can do this using https://www.earthpoint.us/stateplane.aspx. I will then take these lat/long coordinates and put them into the fields for my base mode settings. (Using the LLH option, with lat/long in decimal degrees).
For my vertical elevation, I just need to convert it from US feet to meters, using http://www.kylesconverter.com/length/feet-(u.s.-survey)-to-meters.
For the horizontal coordinates, should I use XYZ as my format instead of LLH. This way, I will just convert my coordinates from US Feet to meters.
Is one of these methods better than the other? Are there any flaws to these methods?
When creating my project, ReachView 3 says to “Make sure your base or NTRIP is in NAD83.” Do my above methods achieve this? I ask because there is no option in the base mode settings to select NAD83.
