Does Locata provide a local or global referenced position?

Thursday, 1 November 2012

Any desired “reference frame” can be provided by a LocataNet. If  LocataLite transmit antennas are surveyed to be referenced, say, to the global WGS84 standard, then the entire LocataNet will adopt and broadcast that reference base. However, surveyors often have to work within a “local reference” such as a local coordinate frame used in areas like open-cut mines. Setting up a LocataNet to utilize the same coordinate frame is relatively straightforward, which means that position calculations do not require conversion between different data sets.
