US: Topcon has announced expanded reference stations in its GNSS network service in North America this week. Canadian Railways has installed more than 40 Topcon reference stations along its rail lines from the Canadian and Minnesota borders to New Orleans. The stations are the newest additions to the TopNETlive network.
“CN is primarily using the TopNETlive network to support its survey and engineering operations,” said¬Charles Rihner, vice president of the Topcon GeoPositioning Group. “The network presents additional opportunities for application expansion in the future.”
The TopNETlive stations were installed in Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota — with plans for more along the CN lines in Iowa in the upcoming summer.
