Geopro regularly establishes permanent airport geodetic control (Primary and Secondary Airport Control Stations). This type of work is both very specialized and physically demanding! A typical project takes about six months to complete and requires coordination with the Airport, Consulting Engineers, the NGS, and the FAA.
After the monuments have been set and surveyed, there is an extensive reporting and data processing workflow that is commonly called “BlueBooking.” The specialized software that is required to complete this process is still DOS based and requires many years of training to do correctly. Geopro’s staff have been performing PACS/SACS establishment for over 20 years and still find these projects to be some of the most challenging to complete!
