We will if we can! Our goal is to do the job right
in the quickest way, and using GPS
equipment saves us time, which saves you money.
Survey grade GPS allows very precise measurements
-- precise enough to use in determining your boundary. We use both
“real-time” or “RTK” survey
grade GPS equipment (which is typically faster.) Survey grade GPS does
not work under trees, but we can often save time with it when measuring
around the perimeter. It’s particularly useful when section
lines fall in a road (in other words, out from under the tree canopy,)
which is not uncommon in Cook County.
To map shorelines, wetlands etc. we use a
“resource-grade” GPS unit which is accurate to plus
or minus 3 feet.
Incidentally, our conventional survey equipment is
a Leica™ total station with electronic distance measurement.
We are accustomed to working in Minnesota's northwoods,
and can be very efficient with this mix of
