How can I get the most out of my rover on SmartNet?

We are constantly asked "How can I get the most out of my rover on SmartNet?" or "What is the proper procedures for using Network RTK?"

First, there is no substitute for good survey practices.  You should always perform the appropriate checks and balances on every project that you work on and observe any standards of practice required by local regulations.  But to make sure that you are getting the most out of your rover and SmartNet, we recommend that you read the attached white papers.

These white papers where developed by a university to make sure Network RTK users were getting the most out of their equipment and the networks they operate on.  You can also find out more about the agency that contracted the study on the link below.
