In part 2 of the MobileMapper instructions we collected data in the field. Now we are going to move our data from the Magellan to the PC and post-process it to improve spatial accuracy.
SED recently bought a Magellan MobileMapper 6 handheld. It collects data with 2-5m real time accuracy, which can be improved to 1-2m with post-processing. The other day I tested it in the Peak District, under pretty ideal conditions, and with post-processing I got accuracy well below 1m. I am very impressed by the GPS positioning accuracy and also by the ease of use of the device, I think it is ideal for the occasional professional user!
The MobileMapper 6 can be borrowed by staff and students. Here are some basic instructions on how to use it:
