L&M Survey Services provide a total solution for all topographic survey requirements. Using real time Global Positioning Systems with the highly accurate RTK network solutions, robotic total stations and LSS/AutoCAD post processing software, we deliver a high quality product at a competitive price. And with our focus firmly on client satisfaction, we produce the processed survey data in a file format to suit your individual requirements.
In the spring of 2007, engineering company Waterman Civils appointed L&M to carry out topographical surveys on the 350-acre Auchincruive Estate on behalf of their client AWG Property, who are planning future site development.
Initially we created a static GPS Control Network on which to base all future site control. We then carried out topographical surveys using a number of techniques, including total stations, robotic total stations and the RTK GPS. The surveys included cross-sections for a flood study programme.
With Phase 1 of the project now complete, Phase 2 will begin once planning permission has been granted.
For our topographical, engineering and quarry surveys, we use the TPS1200+ total station which provides the best reflectorless EDM performance available in the world – a reflectorless range of 2000m, PinPoint accuracy of 2mm and laser dot size of 2cm/50m. It is more efficient and faster than any other one-person-total station and therefore more cost effective. Working with an improved Automatic Target Recognition (ATR) sensor, the TPS1200+ tracks and follows the prism with the highest degree of accuracy and reliability.
For combined topographical and GPS surveys, we use the world’s first total station with integrated GNSS/GPS. This high performance total station has a powerful GNSS/GPS receiver, while the RTK determines the position to centimetre accuracy within a few seconds at ranges up to 50km from a reference station. With less set-up time required and its general ease-of-use, the SmartStation is cost efficient through its increased productivity.
