While not directly related to the Reach units, I often find myself in spots where I need to place GCP’s, but where buildings or foilage covers are 1-2 meters away from the GCP’s, hence blocking out much of the sky.
I can place many of my GCP’s with a Fixed solution from the Reach RS+ unit, and so I have multiple known points of high relative precision (within few milimeters).
The semi-blocked GCP’s I will place using a total station using either stakeout or traversing (closed or fixed).
But what is the most precise method? Traversing seems to offer an more rigid error-correction, while stakeout seems to be faster?
When traversing, I could some sideshots, but would it be more precise to make this corner points instead?
Time is of course always of the essence, but, this is permanent installation (for volumetric measurements), so I’d rather do it the most precise way the first time anyhow.
