Altus Supplies GNSS Receivers to Terraview Surveys

February 22, 2013

Torrance, Calif. – Altus Positioning Systems delivered 20 APS-3U GNSS surveying instruments to TerraView Surveys, a Canadian seismic surveying company based in Calgary, Alberta.

The Altus APS-3U receivers are being used with Nautiz NX7 data collectors and MicroSurvey Seismic Surveyor software for seismic surveying and GIS mapping applications. TerraView also uses GPSeismic and GrafNav software for post processing.

Ron Stewart, president, TerraView Surveys commented, “The Altus APS-3U receivers have greatly improved our productivity, especially when working beneath heavy tree cover. The data is far superior to what we were getting before. Occupation times have decreased, resulting in more production from the crews and reducing our need for post processing data collected in treed areas.”

TerraView Surveys was established in October 2010. Headquartered in Calgary, the company has a U.S. subsidiary in Denver and a marketing office in Houston. TerraView provides a wide range of services including project management, seismic line layout and supervision, line cutting supervision, seismic line surveying, pipeline locating, GIS and hazard mapping, and survey data processing.
