Ground Datum Use

(Michael Lambert) #1

Is anyone here actually using their Reach (RS+/M+) for surveying and/or drones to provide data related to the surveyed I feel like an outcast when I bring this up because - it seems that many people are fine with ellipsoid and geoid elevations?


We use local_HREF and not geoid, so we need to convert height anyways, but single and multiple points is converted in batch easy with the right tool.

We use the GPS localization of our site benchmarks and control points which are surveyed in using a robotic total station and auto-level. I guess this is so new to many that people may not have gotten to use drone data in an existing design data workflow. We have to relate to existing site datum and design files to accomplish what I want us to be able to do.
