Rover Setup

Coordinate System

Choose a coordinate system based on ED50 (such as ED50 / UTM zone 32N), Monte Mario (such as Monte Mario / Italy zone 1), or RDN2008 (such as RDN2008 / UTM zone 33N) datums.

Vertical Datum

Choose the Italy ITG2009 height vertical datum.

The ITG2009 geoid is used to perform the transformation.

Base Setup

Your base or NTRIP service should be in ETRS89. The following methods are used to perform the datum conversion: Italy_ED50 grid, Roma40 grid.

  • The RD2008 datum is a national realization of ETRS89.
  • The datum conversion from ETRS89 to ED50 uses Italy_ED50 grid
  • The datum conversion from ETRS89 to Monte Mario uses Roma40 grid

When setting up a base station on a benchmark, enter ETRS89 geographic coordinates (lat/long) and ellipsoidal height in the ReachView 3 Settings / Base mode.
