Florida Permanent Reference Network
The Florida Permanent Reference Network (FPRN) is an RTK GPS network presently consisting of
over 80 Continuously Operating Reference Stations in Florida built and operated by the Florida
Department of Transportation.
The network presently provides RTK baseline solutions to public and private users free of charge as
a public resource to the taxpayers of the State of Florida, regardless of which brand of GPS equipment
they use. Access is provided through off-the-shelf cellular modems connecting to the internet.
IP/Port assignments for each reference station are available on www.myfloridagps.com.
The system utilizes Leica Geosystems GPS Reference Stations controlled by Leica SPIDER
Reference Station software. Plans call for additional reference stations to be added over time, and
for the inclusion of correction data from existing private and public reference station networks, thus
creating a densely populated system capable of providing network solutions statewide.
For more information on the Florida Permanent Reference Network contact customer support at (850) 510-8596 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
For more information on purchasing and
using Leica GPS equipment to obtain and use RTK corrections from the FPRN, information regarding
other public reference station networks, or for building your own network, contact your local FLT
Geosystems salesperson or inquire at email@example.com.
FPRN uses Leica reference stations to monitor Jacksonville's Dames Point Bridge and Tampa's Sunshine Skyway Bridge, shown here.
