[time-nuts] Imagery position accuracy

Eh, I just recalled the original question a day or so ago and was curious if any of the imagery services had statistics on their position accuracy. It was an interesting question.

This is the server with the marker data.

After you get the position, how does the OP (or anyone else) put the
location data into the Trimble GPS receiver so that it can be used in
the time solution.  This is for NTP remember.

Assuming there is some way, will the Trimble GPS receiver "remember"
the location over a power cycle?

In other words, is there a way to program a Trimble receiver to NOT do
the self-survey on power up and instead to use some survey location
you got by some other method, like possibly hiring a survey team.

If there is a why to make that work, I might even modify the NTP
driver to do it.
