Sokkia & GPS a solid and lasting relationship For decades, Sokkia has taken the lead in developing and marketing total surveying systems, encompassing all phases of the job from the field to the processing and analysis in the office. As one of the world’s foremost manufacturers of surveying equipment, Sokkia recognized the potential of GPS already in the late 80’s of the last century. Thanks to this early insight Sokkia has developed into a major player in the GPS industry.
In 1991 Sokkia introduced a GPS receiver unique for it’s time, the

GPS solutions. Over the last five years a number of new receivers
has introduced the ultimate successor of the well known SDR33 controller software: SDR+. The uniform GPS-ETS operating concept which Sokkia introduced back in the 90’s has been further improved and refined. SDR+ combines an intuitive workflow, powerful data management, true coordinate system flexibility and the most comprehensive editing capability on the market today. SDR+ is completely prepared to be the foundation for all surveying needs in the coming decade, able to integrate whatever upcoming new technology.
The combination of SDR+, the new GSR2700 IS GPS receiver and any of Sokkia’s total stations will give surveying an extra boost of accuracy, efficiency and flexibility!

S D R SDR+ Data collection software A new era in GPS & ETS data collection How to surpass the success of Sokkia’s SDR33, the unrivalled data collector which was a revolution for surveying in the 90’s? Now Sokkia has the answer: SDR+. Keywords for SDR+ are: total flexibility, total control and total freedom. SDR+: staking out a point
With its unique “live” database, SDR+ controller software defines a new era in data-collection. It provides all possible flexibility in collecting, viewing and editing your survey data.
Data management This powerful data management makes SDR+ unique. The database is coordinating all observed points and checking the tolerances constantly. When editing target details in, or adding new control points to the database, SDR+ will check previous observations automatically and will notify the user if there are points which breach their tolerances. This real time observation checking functionality is based on settings configured by the user. The user determines if and when breaches in tolerance are reported as warnings or errors

Stake out Simply load the design coordinates into the SDR+ database; Select the point either from the Plan view or job list for stake out. User definable thresholds will provide quick and easy guidance to the location. A complete and easy to read stake out screen presents information required for effective staking out the point.
Topography Simply define a station setup and bother about the details later. Back sights can be added at any time. The user decides whether to include them in the coordination of points or not. Setting up a SDR+: planview
RTK Base is not much different, SDR+ allows the user to enter the definite control coordinates at any stage of the job. Multiple ways of measuring offset points are available while original observations are always kept in the database. At any point in time the user can verify where your detail points are derived from.
