A case study from Australia

Assessing Reach RS2
performance in Australia

Brian Blakeman Surveys, Australia, assessed Reach RS2 performance in a wide range of field scenarios. The crucial part of the research was comparing Reach accuracy against the benchmarks.

Reach RS2 accuracy test in the USA

E38 Survey Solutions, based in Richfield, OH, USA, surveyed an area with Reach RS2 and compared its accuracy to another RTK receiver. The surveyors selected nine locations with diverse difficulty levels for the test: clear sky view, locations near trees, and next to a building obstructing a sky view.

Open-pit mine design

Valdez Creek Mining, USA

Reach RS2 helped our users design a gold mine pit in Alaska. The team surveyed drill collars with centimeter accuracy and exported the results to a GIS app for pit design. Then they used established base points to place GCPs for progress monitoring.

Topographic survey on the coastline

Kenos Drones, Chile

Photogrammetry for a maritime concession in Punta Arenas, Chile, was a challenging project for Kenos Drones. The team used Reach RS2 for RTK topographic survey at sub-zero temperatures. They lifted high and low tide lines from the coast of the Strait of Magellan.

Fast setup on worksite

1.
Place the local base on your worksite or connect to NTRIP

2.
Configure the correction output and input

3.
You’re all set. Now you can collect points and stake them out with the rover

Survey with your customary data collector and software

Reach RS2 provides data in standard NMEA that is used by most GIS and survey apps. Simply connect your device to Reach over Bluetooth or via cable, and turn on “Position output” in ReachView 3.

Pair with industry-standard data collector

Enjoy your work with Reach RS2 and any regular data collector. Stream NMEA data via Bluetooth.

Work with popular survey software

We’ve successfully completed the tests with the leading land survey software MicroSurvey FieldGenius. Reach RS2 pairs with most types of traditional data collectors via Bluetooth or USB and feeds the coordinates to MicroSurvey FieldGenius in NMEA format. Check out our FieldGenius Setup guide to get started!

Compatible apps

FieldGenius, ArcGIS,
and others
