This course will present the foundation information needed for a GNSS positioning professional to understand how their equipment works, with guidance to its proper usage. It is not a course on GNSS post-processing software nor GNSS orthometric heighting.
Attendees are expected to be familiar with the operation of GNSS positioning equipment and to be proficient in surveying and mapping. Although the course will start with the basics of GNSS technologies, some prior knowledge of GNSS technology is assumed because of the speed of the presentation. Static and real-time positioning will be covered, including demonstrations of Connecticut’s new real-time network (ACORN)
