GPS (Global Positioning System) provides reliable positioning and navigation services to users regardless of weather or time of day. GPS is a constellation of 24 -36 satellites orbiting the earth, four monitoring stations located on earth, and the GPS receivers owned by users. Sophisticated triangulation algorithms use time, distance, satellite position and error correction logic to determine locations on or near the earth.
Communication companies make use of the accurate positional information to locate, plan and engineer their facilities. With the vast amount of GPS derived landbase information available in the public domain, communication companies are funding GPS projects to position their plant on these accurate landbase sources. Based upon your data requirements and target GIS, e-TICS can provide solutions to translate GPS data captured in the field to meaningful data on your map. When using e-TICS, Mid-State Consultants will provide XML integration between the GPS data and e-TICS OSP.
Mid-State Consultants has been providing GPS services to our clients since 1995. We have broad experience in GPS technology, using lasers and compasses to efficiently and accurately capture positional data. We provide or configure data dictionaries to support attribute acquisition activities as well as modules to download GPS information from the data collector to GIS. Most frequently our clients request Mid-State Consultants to provide GPS mapping grade positional accuracy (approximately 1 meter) as a standard for their projects. Often times the data capture teams combine GPS and field inventory into an integrated process to gather plant and subscriber information for communication companies . We look forward to talking with you about GPS technology and how it can benefit your operations.
