It works

  • STAR*NET is the easiest Least Squares Adjustment package to use and understand.
  • Using Least Squares makes you more money by allowing more flexibility in how your crews collect measurements.
  • The results are clear and simple and have been used by surveyors around the world for more than 20 years.

It integrates data easily.

  • Conventional total station measurements can be easily combined with GPS vectors and leveling data.
  • Different instruments can be mixed on the same job in widely varying atmospheric conditions.
  • Do part of the job in the summer and part in the winter. Let STAR*NET compensate for the effect on accuracy.

Input files are simple to work with and understand.

  • The STAR*NET .dat input file can be created by many software packages. Records are one per line and can be edited with any text editor.
  • Input data can be entered in any order. Your crews can start surveying from both ends and meet in the middle. No manipulation of the data is necessary.
  • Bad measurements can be easily commented out of the input file so the adjustment can be run again and again.

Results are clear and reliable.

  • STAR*NET results are well formatted for quick review.
  • The Sum of Squares, Error Factors, and Chi-Square test are sensitive to the inputs and give excellent feedback on what needs to be done to improve your results.
  • Reports offer tremendous flexibility, so they make sense to you and only include what you want.
  • Blunders and errors are quickly spotted.

It gives you confidence in your work.

  • Georeferencing your surveys is much easier. Reports output both geodetic and ground coordinates with combined scale factors.
  • STAR*NET produces the ALTA/NSPS results you need for your surveys.
  • "The Positional Uncertainty of any physical point on a survey, whether the location of that point was established using GPS or conventional surveying methods, may be computed using a minimally constrained, correctly weighted least squares adjustment of the points on the survey." – from the ALTA/NSPS 2011 Land Title Survey requirements.

It has data converters for all types of formats.

  • Designed for converting raw data from various data collection packages into STAR*NET data format.
  • Converters are available for most data formats including TDS, Carlson, TSC (Trimble), SMI, and a variety of levels including Topcon and Leica.
  • Even some hardware manufacturers (Leica, Trimble & others) have recognized the benefit of offering conversion utilities for converting data into STAR*NET .dat format.
