Practical Considerations for Selection Laser, Optical and GNSS Surveying Instruments

Midwest Construction Equipment ~ Laser ~ Optical ~ GNSS ~ Surveying Instruments

Midwest Construction Equipment knows the importance of measuring distances, locating points, measuring/setting angles, setting grade, leveling, plumbing or squaring. If not done correctly, the consequences can be enormous! It is important to have laser, optical, and GNSS surveying equipment that is accurate, reliable and productive.

The Midwest Construction Equipment Buyers Guide was prepared to assist buyers in making informed decisions about the purchase of new or used laser, optical, and GNSS surveying instruments.

Topics included are:

  • Evolution of technology
  • Summary of equipment types and uses
  • Understanding buyer needs, present and future
  • Available budget
  • Deciding whether to purchase new or used instruments
  • Market factors
  • Purchasing sources
  • Considerations in selecting a dealer
  • Instrument manufacturers
  • Other supporting and background information to inform a purchase decision

Lasers – Lasers are primarily used to set elevation, grade or plumb construction elements. They can also be used for 3D imaging in support of engineering work, and laser energy is the dominant technology for distance meters.

Optical – For years, optical sighting for projecting grade and angles to distant points was used. Optical technology still plays an important role in many of today’s surveying instruments.

GNSSGNSS technology is applied to traditional surveying functions as well as earthwork machine control. It is a generic term used to describe satellite systems that provide positioning for a range of activities.
