eGPS Solutions announced a first for high-precision GPS positioning in Georgia with a surveying and mapping system covering the northern part of the state.

Using Trimble Navigation's VRS (Virtual Reference Station) technology, the eGPS Solutions system enables surveyors to accomplish their work faster, more accurately and more efficiently.

Through the use of ten base stations continuously collecting GPS data and a central processing facility, eGPS Solutions can survey and map an area encompassing up to 10,000 square miles. Coverage is comprised of 41 North Georgia counties extending from Athens to those bordering Alabama and includes all of metro Atlanta.

Located in Norcross, eGPS Solutions was founded earlier this year. Its senior executives have over 60 years of combined experience in the surveying and mapping industry, and are members of the Surveying and Mapping Society of Georgia. eGPS Solutions is Georgia's first Internet-based, real-time GPS network.
