Visible Float & Fix solution status, elevation & antenna height, collection time & Moving the Base.
Following on from your much-appreciated responses to my previous topic:
Single, Float or Fix Solution Status
Q. Is the “Single, Float or Fix “Solution Status visible in ReachView while I’m collecting a point?
Q. Is the collection complete once the status bar has filled and changed from red to blue (sometimes a few seconds)?
Index number viable anywhere .
Q. Prior to exporting the survey data file i.e. While I’m collecting an actual survey point can I see its index number somewhere in the ReachView App after I’ve renamed that point?
Subtract the antenna height from its associated elevation.
Q. I’m collecting centre line ground profile data under existing powerlines in remote locations in Australia so am simply setting up a base RS+ on a tripod for GPS corrections over LoRa to an RS+ Rover on a survey pole and traversing along the centreline o the powerline collecting changes in elevation, pole, stay, T-Off etc points for use in a modelling tool for conductor to ground and conductor to structure clearances, so coordinates and elevations need to be accurate but only need to be relative i.e. a CSV file containing point number, point name, Lat, Long and elevation all associated data (pole & conductor data is added to the CSV after being exported) so with this in mind is the ReachView elevation output the Ellipsoid height with the antenna height already subtracted or do I need to do that manually?
The same data collection process goes for my next two questions about moving the base as and if needed ; i.e. when I don’t have an NTRIP service but the data collected (coordinates and elevations) need to be accurate but only need to be relative for the powerline modelling tool.
Q 1. If I need to add additional points to a survey either after I completed it or to extend it, do I need to setup my base in exactly the same place as it was originally or can I setup the base in a different location further along my survey rout, collect some of the original points again for reference and continue taking points?
Q 2. With the previous question in mind, could I setup my base antenna on my vehicle and once I reach the GPS corrections over LoRa limits move my vehicle or set up a tripod base, retake some of the previous points for reference and continue on?
