Description: OPUS Projects is a web-based GPS processing and network adjustment package with access to simple visualization, management, and processing tools for multiple marks and multiple occupations. OPUS Projects is a natural extension of OPUS that allows engineers, surveyors, and other users to position campaign-style GPS observations (geodetic networks) with greater accuracy by combining them through multi-baseline processing and least-squares adjustments. In this webinar, we will highlight many of the features of OPUS Projects and describe the usual workflow for processing and adjusting GPS data with OPUS Projects. By the end of the webinar, participants should have enough knowledge of OPUS Projects to determine if they are interested in the OPUS Projects training.
Presenter: Dan Martin works for the National Geodetic Survey and is currently the Geodetic Advisor to the State of Vermont. In May of 2015, he will become the Northeast Regional Advisor and will be working with the states of ME, NH, VT, MA, CT, RI, NY, and NJ.

In 2003 Dan began his career with the National Geodetic Survey. As the State Geodetic Advisor, he instructs local surveyors and state and municipal agencies on how to use and preserve the National Spatial Reference System, and provides liaison between the National Geodetic Survey and the State of Vermont. Dan is a Past President of the American Association for Geodetic Surveying (AAGS), and is a Fellow Member of the American Congress on Surveying and Mapping. He is also a member of the Vermont Society of Land Surveyors and the New Hampshire Land Surveyors Association.
