Advancements in Blackstone's Geospatial Services
Increasing GPS Collection Accuracy and Streamlining Data Collection

Many environmental and civil engineering projects require accurate spatial locating for data collection and surveying in the field, and Blackstone is pleased to announce two exciting new advancements to our UAV and Geospatial Service Line. The first advancement is related to increasing our GPS collection spatial accuracy and secondly to streamline data collection.
