Survey Global Navigation Satellite System

Surveyors are increasingly leaving behind their theodolite and using the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) for most of the surveys they undertake.

Surveys such as:

  • land development
  • cadastral surveying
  • engineering surveying
  • topographic surveying
  • construction surveying and set out
  • urban design and planning
  • hydrographic surveying
  • mining surveying
  • land administration
  • geodesy.
