Birdwatchers

John Houston worked on a project for the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) to mitigate a serious threat to Gough Island’s bird population. He used Trimble CenterPoint RTX, R10 and other Trimble products, to collect information on topography and soils for use in planning and design of temporary facilities on theIsland, which would be used during the mice eradication project.
