Description: Presented by Assoc. Prof. Thomas H. Meyer, PhD, Department of Natural Resources and the Environment, University of Connecticut. The Connecticut Advanced Continuously Operating Reference Network (ACORN) provides land surveyors the ability to perform centimeter-accuracy GNSS positioning in real time — i.e., no post processing or network adjustment. Attendees will be shown how real-time positioning works, how to register for an account, how to use ACORN in practice (can-do, must-do, shouldn’t do, tips and tricks), and be given an “insider” tour of how ACORN operates. Attendees interested in using ACORN are encouraged to register for an ACORN account (go to acorn.uconn.edu) before the seminar. The minimum equipment needed to use ACORN is a survey-grade GNSS receiver fitted with a cellular modem. Time will be allotted to go outside and use ACORN, so attendees are encouraged to bring their own equipment, if they have it.
