Maysville, Ky., U.S.A (July 1, 2010) – Two years in development, Carlson Software’s Surveyor+ GPS System is now available. It’s the lowest priced, most flexible solution of its kind for accurate, RTK data collection from either cellular-based reference stations or base-to-rover systems.
This dual frequency RTK GNSS receiver and field controller comes with Carlson’s Surveyor+ data collector with its full keyboard, a GSM modem, GNSS board, pole, antenna and additional accessories. The “form factor” is compact with no bulky receiver on the pole and the unit can be used with total stations as well. For those who already own a Carlson Surveyor+ data collector, the RTK engine can be added at any time, making the system fully scalable.
“The Surveyor+ GPS System is a surveyor’s dream,” says Butch Herter, director of Hardware Development for Carlson Software. “Surveyors can purchase just the data collector to operate almost any of their existing equipment and at a later time add the GPS/GNSS pack. They can even do the install themselves in the field. The system is very rugged,” he adds, “and uses the same GNSS board technology as much more expensive systems.”
For surveyors doing field data collection, the Surveyor+ GPS can read all popular GPS/GLONASS message types and is a perfect companion to any RTK system. The Surveyor+ GPS System allows users to do their GPS fieldwork in the morning, establish control for total station work in the afternoon, all with a rugged hand-held unit.
In addition, the rugged, reliable and accurate Surveyor+ GPS System comes with the highly popular Carlson SurvCE data collection software with its extensive GPS and total station drivers.
For those who have waited to make their first purchase of GPS, or are looking to add systems, now is the time to consider the Carlson Surveyor+ GPS System. When you buy from Carlson, you always get their free and top-rated technical support. For more information or to find a dealer near you, call Carlson at 800-989-5028 or visit www.carlsonsw.com.
