GPS Usage Guide

The following are general comments on dos and don'ts of using the Trimble 4700 system.
  1. (DIS-)ASSEMBLY & PACKING
  2. CABLES & CONNECTORS
  3. BATTERIES
  4. ANTENNAS
  5. TRIPODS & TRIBRACHS
  6. RECEIVERS & HAND CONTROLLER
  7. RADIO MODEMS
  8. FASTSTATIC/RAPID STATIC SURVEYS
  9. PC CARDS
  10. DATA ARCHIVAL
    There is an archive for GPS data maintained by the Thermal Group; it is under /data/thermal/archive/GPS_data on the CMES Sun machines. Anyone using the GPS system may add their data to the archive; it may be compressed to minimize disk usage. Talk to the Thermal Group to add your data to the archive. The advantage of adding the data to the archive is that the Thermal Group maintains their own backups, which is yet another copy in the event of catastrophic events. This archive is not guaranteed (it is free, though), and additional copies should be used for processing.
