Re: N. albimarginatus -Reply
My brother-in - law is a civil engineer he surveys commercial and residential
sites on a daily basis . In his business he
uses gps every day. I believe that if it were as unstable as previous people
have said then it would not be used in
such a tedious situation as this. I therefore, believe that most of you
do not have a inkling as to what you are
discussing. Gps systems have become quite a reliable system for data
and are used throughout the world.
thanks , Bob :-)
