GPS Services  

Survey & Mapping Services has been in the GPS field since 1988. In that time, SMS have performed numerous GPS surveys, including; photogrammetry control for county wide and other aerial mapping projects, horizontal and vertical control for tower surveys (FAA Requirements) and conventional surveys, utilities and wetlands mapping for preliminary land development design, RTK (real time kinematic) mapping for engineering design surveys (topographic, as-built, monitoring wells and boring locations, volumes, etc.), GIS data collection, golf course mapping and small scale hydrographic surveys.

Survey & Mapping Services uses the state-of-the-art Topcon HiPer V systems to obtain +/- 1 cm accuracy on static control surveys and +/- 2 cm accuracy on kinematic and RTK surveys. For additional GIS and general purpose mapping, SMS has the Trimble Pathfinder ProXR, to provide quick, submeter data collection. Coupled with the latest in Spectra Precision Survey Pro Field Software and Topcon Magnet Tools GPS software, SMS is able to output the data in various CAD/GIS formats, including AutoCAD v2006 and DXF.

We utilize the SC Virtual Reference Station (SCVRS) Network!  In order to provide quicker & more economic GPS services to our clients, Survey & Mapping Services subscribes to the SC Virtual Reference Station Network (a project partnership of the South Carolina Geodetic Survey and the South Carolina Department of Transportation).  This service gives us the ability to provide RTK GPS data over virtually the entire state, using cellular communication in lieu of the range-limited radio modems.  For additional information about SCVRS, click: .
