Sad News

T. Michael Besch, P.S., Professor Emeritus at the University of Akron, passed away Wednesday, November 30.  Arrangements are pending and will be posted as they become available.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife, Ann Besch, P.S., and the entire Besch family during this difficult time.

ODOT enables L2C

The ODOT CORS/VRS team has enabled the L2C signal on their CORS stations. This signal is now available to the ODOT VRS users to enhance their network corrections. Users who wish to use L2C may experience improved connectivity near tree canopy. As always, we ask that before you enable changes to your controller configurations you conduct tests to insure the results you are getting meet your accuracy expectations.

For feedback or questions, please contact Ray Foos, P.S. or David Beiter, P.E. at the ODOT Office of CADD and Mapping Services.
