Frequently Asked Questions
How is GPS Surveying so accurate?
LiveLocates uses GPS devices with HxGN SmartNet enabled, a global GNSS positioning system that gives precision between 1-10cm depending on conditions. Gone are the days of hauling around two bulky GPS receivers, several batteries, and cables, two radios, a tripod and a pole, and then needing to set up their own base for each project.
Now, HxGN network users simply carry a paired GPS or GNSS receiver with either a modem or a mobile phone and use that to quickly access a network of permanent reference stations to begin mapping accurately.
How much do these services cost?
Our GPS surveying and reporting service is our gold standard level of reporting and is available to all customers regardless of the size of their project. There are additional charges for this level of reporting over our standard pictorial reports however those customers who have engaged our services to produce this level of report have quickly seen the benefit in the availability of data that they can incorporate into their own plans as well as the larger scale view provided in the format of these plans.
