Prepared for the Maritime GPS Implementation Committee
by Geoplan Consultants Inc. in association with Gillis Survey Systems Inc.
The provinces of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island are currently moving from a conventional survey control system to a more accurate control system based upon Global Positioning System (GPS) technology.
These guidelines have been developed to assist in the management of the new survey control system. Within these guidelines, the following subjects have been addressed: the geodetic datum to be utilized in supporting the control system, accuracy standards, GPS observation procedures, GPS data processing and adjustments, data storage, and the use of validation networks.
A version number has been assigned to this document. GPS observation and processing techniques continue to evolve, and the provincial agencies using these guidelines may periodically find the need to review and update this document. It is recommended that a two year cycle may be appropriate for such a review and, if required, an updated version should be prepared at that time.
At present, this version of the guidelines is to be viewed as a working document until it has gone through the various standards processes in the individual provinces.
