Mussio, Luigi

According to the results obtained in this work, we conclude:
the precision in the presented detail drawing and in the
given co-ordinates of antennae frame centre are not
The use of DGPS might be enough to determine the co
ordinates of one point in the WGS84 system
consequently in the Italian National system with metric
precision, by using known transformation parameters.
The use of MDL instrument with caution may give
accuracy at the level of decimetre in radiation surveying
at the medium range, considering the advantages of
taking many redundant measurements from two stations.
The precision of Intersection surveying with Theodolite
or total station may reach a few centimetres, but more
field work is needed.
Finally, using GPS integrated with classical methods may be
considered as one of the good methodologies for positioning
and orienting the mobile phone antennae. Afterwards the
transformation parameters between the WGS84 system and
the Italian National system have to be applied. This
transformation between the two system has been made easier
thanks to IGM95 network.
