Surveying, Mapping and GIS expedition to British Virgin Islands
24th May 2013
We are pleased to support four Newcastle University students who are undertaking an expedition to Anegada. Located on the North East boundary of the British Virgin Islands, the island bares the full force of the Atlantic and is made up of coral and limestone which makes it susceptible to coastal erosion. The team will use rapid static GNSS survey techniques and the existing USGS base station to create a semi-permanent control network from which more detailed topographical mapping of the coastline can be undertaken.
