Topcon Positioning Group announces expanded reference stations in its GNSS network service in North America. CN railway has installed more than 40 Topcon reference stations along its rail lines from the Canada and Minnesota border to New Orleans. The stations are the newest additons to the TopNETlive network.

TopNETlive is designed to deliver high-accuracy GNSS correction data to rovers for surveying, construction, mapping and agricultural applications.

"CN is primarily using the TopNETlive network to support its survey and engineering operations," said Charles Rihner, vice president of the Topcon GeoPositioning Group. "The network presents additional opportunities for application expansion in the future."

The TopNETlive stations were installed in Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota - with plans for more along the CN lines in Iowa in the upcoming summer.
