I have some work lined up this week surveying a series of sites for a local council requiring 1-2 cm accuracy,
I am planning on using a Reach RS+ which has just been delivered with Drone deploys Business package and a Phantom 4 Pro V2, I’ve made a series of chequered GCPs with wood panels below to weigh them down, and have purchased a 2m telescopic GNSS survey pole, and I also have a hand held spirit level to make sure our pole is straight when recording points.
Does anyone who has any experience using a set up similar to this have any tips or tricks, or anything worth watching out for when putting all this together.
My plan is to export the the finalized model into a DXF format, insert it into Auto cad myself and make any changes required if some points do not align and if I need to add in any further GCPs into the model I can do here, I have seen recommendations to leave a 50 feet buffer between GCPs and the edge of the surveyed area, any have any recommendations here on how far GCPs should be apart from each other?, I will be numbering each one so when allocating the points I have a nice visual reference to use.
Hopefully all goes to plan, and if successful should lead to a lot more work, but assuring this runs smoothly is crucial to us at this moment in time, I hope someone else on here has some similar experiences,
