Does water flow up hill?

Our company has completed an extensive review of over 260 First Order Geodetic Elevations throughout the Niagara Region, and you would be surprised at the results we found!


Niagara Region

eBee Drone We are always trying to stay current and move forward in our field of work. We are currently working towards a new phase with UAV/Drone Technology. We have recently purchased a Drone and will be able to assist clients in many different ways. Through use of our Drone we are able to achieve large coverage with Photogrammetric Mapping. Using RTK capabilities allows us to have survey grade accuracy from the air.

Leica Geosystems
Skyline In striving to give our clients the best in customer service and accuracy we have installed a Leica GPS / Glonass Reference Station. This allows our crews to achieve Real Time Kinematics (RTK) in the field and ensures the integrity of the data. The reference station is more accurate, more powerful, more versatile and more reliable than ever before!!
Station2 In conjunction with the GPS / Glonass Reference Station, our crews are using the RTK GPS Leica SmartAntenna. The SmartAntenna is a lightweight computerized system with a controller that includes Windows CE and Bluetooth wireless technologies. It also has SmartTrack and SmartCheck features. This allows us to acquire all visible satellites within seconds, measure under trees and in areas of interference and at low elevations while ensuring centimeter accuracy in our measurements by obtaining low residuals.
satellite If your project requires the use of a Total Station our crews have the Leica TS15 and the Pinpoint R400 Imaging Total Station for fast, continuous, high-accuracy, ease-of-use and reliability. The TPS is reflectorless which allows us to measure to wall corners, inaccessible objects, façades, rock faces, in fact any feature that is difficult to set up a reflector.
By using both of these systems it allows us to easily interchange the data between the two!!!
We have been using AutoCAD since 1993 and have created over 5000 files. Our company is using AutoCAD Civil 3D 2015, for our computerized drafting. This allows the free flow of information between ourselves and other professionals on your team as, together, we develop your project. The importance of having reliable and usable CAD drawings is paramount whether your venture is $10,000.00 or $10,000,000.00
