Case Study: Reach RS2 Accuracy in RTK Survey

E38 Survey Solutions based in Richfield, OH, USA recently 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 that obstructs a sky view.

Survey data was collected in RTK mode and compared to data provided by a robotic total station and another traditional RTK receiver. The data were also processed using OPUS. Based on the survey results, horizontal RMSE is 1.67 cm (0.055 ft) in reasonable conditions.

We were interested in thoroughly testing the Reach RS2 performance. And we are glad that Reach has proven centimeter accuracy even in challenging environments. That means our clients can take full advantage of Reach receivers for surveying in various conditions.
