Introduction to Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) & GNSS Workshop - 1 Day Class

Get the most out Real-time kinematic (RTK) surveys by providing centimeter-level precision coordinates without post-processing.

We will show you best practices in the field and office to save time using RTK, VRS or even an OPUS solution. Learn how to troubleshoot your data in the office. Use Trimble Access Software to collect data in the field using an R10, R8s, or R2 Trimble receiver. If you are a new or intermediate user, this workshop will sharpen your skills and teach you tips and tricks to be more effective in the field.

The primary objectives are to increase field & office efficiencies and reduce the time and effort of collecting and processing GNSS data.

Are you new to Trimble SiteCalibration procedures or need a refresher on Site Calibration? This class will cover the things you need to know to be confident with your results. The Vectors team will guide you through a field exercise with Trimble Access and an office portion with Trimble Business Center.

Surveyors have expressed challenges when training new field staff. This workshop will provide you with the knowledge to assist in mitigating challenges in implementing best practices in the field. By re-tooling your field operating procedures, expect to save time by collecting data efficiently and accurately the first time and eliminating human procedural errors. In addition, this training will support your office technicians by providing them with the knowledge to correctly dissect imperfections in the data and perform appropriate adjustments while processing the final data. This will lead to an overall reduction in costs, and an increase in productivity.
