As Electronic Distance Measurement Equipment (EDME) technology significantly advances, so too must the way instruments are calibrated. Valuable time and resources are committed to ensuring EDME is calibrated to ensure national standards are met. As such, it is vital that the methods employed for calibration are the most appropriate for the instruments used.

In order to assist the profession in this regard, this paper investigates the current EDME calibration baseline designs used in Queensland and analyses the suitability of each in order to devise an alternative baseline design. The methodology used was to identify key characteristics of an existing baseline design and select the most accurate of those to construct a new design. This process was then applied over multiple designs and the results analysed and compared to determine the viability of the alternative design.
