Leica Geosystems Introduced Spider GPS Reference Station Control Software

Leica GeosystemsintroducedSpider GPS reference station control software. The new Spider reference station control software, with full Internet connectivity, can be used to control a single local-area GPS reference station or a complex wide-area network of reference stations serving large regions. Spider is designed to run continuously and automatically to control Leica System 500 series reference station receivers. Each reference station’s software and the entire network can be managed by system supervisors from one or more remote computers using a TCP/IP network or dial-up connection. The Spider software downloads logged data files at specified times and intervals, checks the completeness and quality of downloaded data, creates RINEX files and distributes files to one or multiple FTP servers.
