Topcon GNSS Receivers Chosen for Large-Scale National Network in Finland

LIVERMORE, Calif., USA / CAPELLE A/D IJSSEL, The Netherlands –Topcon Europe Positioning B.V. announces the successful bid award for 400 HiPer SR network GNSS receivers by Maanmittauslaitos, the National Land Survey of Finland, NLS.

NLS is responsible for a number of national geo-data services online and at various service locations throughout the country. Users include landowners, real estate agents and hikers — and services provided include property information, cadastral surveys, printed maps and publications, digital products and ICT-services.

To help maintain the highest possible standards of work and data production, the NLS carries out a four-year review and assessment of geomatics equipment, services and solutions — and from 2016 to 2020 will be utilizing high-precision Topcon GNSS solutions.

“We have worked very closely with local distributor Topgeo Oy (based in Vantaa, Finland) to win this tender, and are proud to have won it,” said Tarja Montus, regional sales manager for Topcon Europe Positioning.

The rollout of systems will take place throughout the coming months, with an initial batch of 75 units having already been delivered to NLS.

“The Maanmittauslaitos will be using our Topcon HiPer SR receivers to carry out field-based operations connecting to and receiving RTK data from the national network GNSS system,” said Montus. “Field surveyors will be using MAGNET® Field data collection, which facilitates seamless field-to-office data interactivity.”

Topcon MAGNET solutions include the cloud-based MAGNET Enterprise which simplifies project tasks and directly improves field and office communications, with the ability to track assets and communicate with each team member even while on the move — gaining access to project data on any device to oversee the real-time advancement of your projects.

Marko Ollikainen, NLS chief expert production support services, said, “NLS chose the overall most economical equipment based on price and quality factors. Productivity was the most important out of quality factors for us. All equipment was tested in different parts of Finland in challenging terrain environments, so reliability and efficiency of the equipment was found. In the NLS comparison tests, Topcon had the fewest number of measurement errors and its reliability and efficiency were the best of the tested devices.”
