When the military opened its Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) System to civilian use, surveying was one of the first applications developed. Today, GPS surveys are widely used for large-scale surveys of land, coastal areas, and rugged terrain. GPS surveys are based on signals transmitted from a network of 24 satellites orbiting the Earth. These signals make it possible to accurately determine positions on the Earth’s surface. GPS survey applications produce highly accurate results and can be performed in any weather conditions.
Unlike traditional survey methods, GPS surveys are conducted by only one or two men equipped with high-tech instruments—resulting in fewer man-hours and notable cost savings.
The licensed professional land surveyors at Vargo Associates have years of experience with GPS surveying. Employing the most advanced GPS survey instruments to deliver highly accurate, cost-effective results, Vargo’s comprehensive GPS survey services include:
