Abstract:
Global Positioning Systems (GPS) have introduced to the Construction Industry a new tool with as many possibilities as the Laser presented for increasing the efficiencies, repeatability and accuracy for the contractor. As the industry grows and global positioning systems mature, many applications will emerge from this new tool. This paper discusses merging global positioning with a rotating laser reference to provide an efficient mobile surveying system, as well as a method of automated machine control.
