GIS/GPS – GPS and Surveying Equipment

GPS and Surveying Equipment

Scientists, students, and staff at RMBL use GPS and surveying equipment to accurately and precisely locate features related to their projects in three-dimensional space on the surface of Earth. GPS receivers calculate their position using <a href=”” target=”_blank”>trilateration from three or more Earth-orbiting GPS satellites.
