“LAND-PAK is a turn-key StarFire/RTK survey solution that now offers the choice of Carlson Software for field and office work, “ said Steve Ault, NavCom’s product manager. “This allows our customers the choice to customize their LAND-PAK – to select which software tool works best for them - to get the job done right.”
LAND-PAK also offers a lifetime license for the StarFire global satellite-based augmentation system, which delivers five centimeter horizontal accuracy worldwide and provides required flexibility of a DGPS solution.
With the bundle, users of NavCom GNSS products can conduct their field work and send data seamlessly into Carlson Survey to quickly complete as-built, topo map, subdivision or survey plat deliverables.
