Topographic measurements of Little Holland Tract, Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, California, 2015, using backpack GPS

Online link
Description Topographic data were collected by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in 2015 for Little Holland Tract in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta, California. The data were collected on foot using a global positioning system (GPS) backpack platform that consisted of survey-grade Trimble R10 and R7 global navigation satellite system (GNSS) receivers with Zephyr 2 antennas. Orthometric elevations relative to NAVD88 were computed using the National Geodetic Survey Geoid12a, and the final data were projected in Cartesian coordinates using the UTM Zone 10 North (meters) (NAD83[2011]) coordinate system. The mean estimated vertical uncertainty of the 2015 USGS GPS backpack survey is 3.5 cm.  [More]
