GPS a common resource on open and remote sites


As crews with a London area survey firm head to work on a massive wind farm development underway in Ontario’s Niagara region, you can rest assured there is one tool they won’t be leaving behind: GPS.

Over the past decade, global positioning systems have become an increasingly common resource on the construction site, especially those situated in remote or open areas, says Rob Hern, owner and president of Trueline Services Inc.

Indeed, GPS has become key to the delivery of the Komoka, Ont. firm’s services such as construction surveys, topographical mapping and pre-engineering surveying.
