ISU GPS Base Station Information
A Trimble 5700 receiver was installed on Durham Center at ISU in January 2009. It was surveyed and setup for use during the summer of 2009. Files it generates may be used to correct data gathered since September 8, 2009. The accuracy of the base station has been verified with a survey grade dual channel receiver and is within specifications for stated accuracy. If you wish to see the test results, visit this link. There is an anonymous ftp site to download correction files here.
