Emlid Reach RS Training

Today I provided an informal training session for interested Keele GGE staff, students and postgraduates, on the use of the Emlid Reach RS GNSS antennas for survey grade georeferencing. The training focused on setup, configuration, survey techniques, potential pitfalls and suggested uses.

I have been using the Emlids since early February 2018 when they were purchased by the department, throughout there use they have proven to be an excellent and cheap alternative to the more familiar GNSS systems offered by the likes of Leica, Trimble and Topcon.

First Guest Lecture

Giving PresentationToday I gave my first guest lecture at Keele University. The lecture provided an overview of the many ways in which geophysical data can be georeferenced, and the associated accuracies for each method. This included GNSS, Total Stations, Structure from Motion (SfM), Lidar, through to mobile mapping systems.

I felt that the lecture was well recived with a good level of student interaction via mentimeter.
