Hi all, looking at getting a Reach RS+ base and rover for archaeological survey work in UK and have a few questions.
I’d mostly be surveying excavation trenches and structures. Spot heights, extents, baselines etc. How easy is it to set up codes for types of point?
Most sites I would be there for at least half a day so could set up base station straight away. Most sites will not have accurately georeferenced survey points, and many won’t have good mobile covereage, let alone mobile internet. What would be the options for getting towards centimetre accuray? Base station will generally be no more than 100m from Rover.
I’ve looked at ‘Ways to set the base’, is ‘Post-Processed Kinematic’ the best choice, how do you get the RINEX logs? There appears to be one in my home town. How straightforward is the post-processing, are there step by step guides?
I understand that the Reach takes points in WGS84, how easy is it to convert to OSGB1936? Especially for vertical Z height to convert to m OD? Is this possible in realtime? For post-processing from WGS to OSGB, are there simple step by step guides?
All help appreciated! Thank you.
