GPS

Team Elmer's also employs GPS (Global Positioning System) into our site development projects. The GCS900 (Grade Control System 3D Automatic Control) from Trimble puts design surfaces, grades and alignments inside the cab. You can operate the system in a completely stakeless environment and grade to an accuracy of 0.1 ft.

Bottom line: GPS takes what the Engineers & Surveyors see on a computer screen and turns it into a hands-on product out in the real world.

How It Works:

1) A design surface is built in AutoCADD from construction plans and is uploaded to the GCS900.

2) We perform a site-calibration on-site. A site-calibration converts the design surface coordinates to GPS coordinates which allows the D6T to know its location relative to the site.

3) The dozer operator can then drive anywhere on-site and know the precise cut or fill to finished grade. The blade of the dozer is controlled by the GPS unit and will follow the design surface.

4) The package also included a Rover unit which can be used on-site separate from the dozer to check grades, calculate volume of materials, and supply survey stakes.
