A CORS for the tragics - Kulwin

Post by Tuena » 23 October 17 4:33 pm

Adding a few new CORS when I saw this one:

http://spatialservices.finance.nsw.gov. ... lt_page=94

Appears to be on PP so let it go.

(Edit) Well that URL link didn't work so just add the inbetween!

Whats a CORS? Looks on the site and it doesn't really say what a CORS actually is
Some kind of Trig type thing?

Edit: Found this: https://www.ngs.noaa.gov/CORS/

They're Trigs. They're modern replacements for those old beacons on the tops of hills. When I add a new CORS I also add tags "cors" so you could run a Query with the tag of cors & you'd get 217 CORS. There have been 7 added in Tasmania but mostly NSW. I've added a few as have others. As I recall there was a discussion on the forum.

Kulwin has a beautiful old trig in the background which my link, if I knew how to add it properly, takes you to.

CORS stands for Continuously Operating Reference Station using these can get accuracy down to 20 mm

Too bad about the $10k price tag for a receiver.

Maybe LovelyLadyLocks (IIRC, apologies for the misspelling of the name) can help getting us some cheap ones :-)
