> Good luck for your project, especially because it is educational.
> You said do not have a precise vertical network, even so you can use GPS and mix it with traditional topographic leveling for critical nstallations.
> I do not know your project extension and precision requirements but i believe you can use GPS and a relative geoid undulation to correct the geometric height differences and get an almost orthometric height.
> I have used EGM2008 and this way and get realy good results.
> Pay attention on EGM2008 if you have no gravitational anomalies in your working area and for sure this simple differential model will give you acceptable results.
> Hj - Hi = (hj - hi) - ( Nj - Ni )
> N=geoid ondulation
Thanks you, since we are talking about small networks, I think we
should really get good results, I appreciate you backup my guess.
I will read throught the documentation, thanks!
