The Juniper Systems Geode sub-meter GPS receiver put to the test under dense forest tree canopy
For most of us, most of the time it's better to be approximately right than completely wrong. That, however, doesn't apply to surveyors and other GIS professionals for whom to be "approximately right" simply isn't good enough. That's where sub-meter GPS receivers like Juniper System's Geode come into play. A recent entry in Juniper's ever interesting Get Rugged blog describes how the Geode was put to the test under a dense forest tree canopy.
