Wolf Survey and Mapping of Calgary, Alberta will use the GPS systems for a wide range of applications in support of seismic exploration and surveying applications, such as survey and mapping services, seismic line clearing, and shothole drilling.

Leica Geosystems, Norcross, Ga., announced that the Canadian seismic services company Wolf Survey and Mapping (a division of Destiny Resources Services Partnership) has taken delivery of an order for 65 Leica GPS 1230 surveying systems.

Based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, Wolf Survey and Mapping is a major supplier of seismic front-end services to energy exploration and production companies in Canada. The company will use the GPS systems for a wide range of applications in support of seismic exploration and surveying applications, such as survey and mapping services, seismic line clearing, and shothole drilling.

The GX1230 receivers are designed with Leica's new SmartTrack GPS measurement engine, and incorporate fast self-checking RTK algorithms and a comprehensive self-explanatory graphical user interface. The rugged GPS instruments, with magnesium alloy construction, are built to the toughest MIL specifications to withstand extreme field conditions. The SmartTrack technology acquires all visible satellites within seconds, tracks to low elevations and measures under trees and in areas of interference where other receivers often fail. Leica's SmartCheck technology for RTK ensures reliable centimeter-accuracy solutions at distances of 30 km or more.
