Wrong Rod Height

So I took measurements of my GCPs in local coordinates and forgot to adjust for the length of my range pole. I know the length of the range pole I was using, is there a way I can adjust for the mistake post processing?

So I’ve figured this out. I just needed to think about it for a minute. I needed to change the elevation of the GCP from the wrong number to the right number. I did this by adding the number of the difference between the wrong rod length and the right rod length to the elevation of the GCP. Example:


Wrong rod length: 14 feet

Right rod length:   10 feet

Difference of 4 feet was added to my elevation.of the GCP

Hi Daniel,

Glad that you find a solution by yourself.

You could have edited your GCPs file with the correct altitude in a excel for example and then import the new file.
