Raising A State Plane Projection

Raising A State Plane Projection

Back in January, 2016, Loyal Olson described a consulting project that required raising a state plane so that ground distances were very close to grid distances and state plane grid azimuths were preserved. The purpose of this post is to share the results of the research that Loyal? post prompted me to do. Let? explore the relationships and mathematics that make it possible to raise a Lambert state plane projection to provide ground distances and grid azimuths over a limited area.

Is GPS Really A Gift to Surveying?

Is GPS Really A Gift to Surveying?

Today, with survey grade GPS, measurements can be made to the nearest centimeters. Are today? advancements in technology improvements that we really need? Were the skills and accuracies of yesterday good enough for land measurements? Is GPS surveying just another way of challenging yesterdays’ skills?
