User defined Mercator Transversal system

Post by Claudio Vazquez » Fri Jul 23, 2010 5:52 pm

Hi again,

I also recently bought a new Trimble R4 gps system with Glonass, I am trying with “Trimble R8/5800” drivers and seams to work fine, just sames difficultys with the Bluetooth connection, but the first and most important problem is: I am working in Uruguay South America I only have the option to work in UTM proyection but in almost every time it is necessary to work with a local Mercator Transversal Proyection in order to minimizing differences between TS and GPS observations,
Trimble, Carlson, Leica, Sokkia, Javad, etc. has the possibility to perform this kind of proyections with user defined central meridian and false north and east.
The Microsurvey team are planing these kind of addition in new versions?
I am a happy user of FG since 2007 and I would like to be for long time.

It's sounds like you want to be using the GPS to local transformation option. This will allow you to tie gps derived coordinates to existing ground control values or vise versa.
