Jon Aschenbach will describe how ArcPad can be used with both US and Russian (GLONASS) satellites to collect the best possible GPS data under tree canopy. He will show how to set up ArcPad for improved GPS accuracy, how to incorporate laser rangefinders for GPS offsets, and proper field procedures for best accuracy. He will also review the use of imagery in the daily use of ArcPad. His conclusion will look at the future of GPS and the "Game Changing" options soon to be available to all GPS users.
