|USE OF A GPS TELESCOPIC MAST
A telescopic mast is used to raise the antenna of a GPS receiver above the obstructions (trees, buildings,...) present around the observing site. The goal is to improve the reception of the satellite signals which enhances the quality of the positioning results and increases the productivity of GPS surveys, keeping in mind the protection of the environment. A telescopic mast yields surveys with a precision at the centimeter level in places where it would otherwise be impossible or unproductive to use GPS.
