Points are located using an electronic Total Station and field data is stored on a data collector or in a field book. In the office, this data is downloaded directly to a computer for calculations and CAD plotting.
A prism assembly attached to the top of a prism pole enables measurements from the Total Station to nearly all points located during a typical survey traverse.
Our crew has experience on construction stake-out projects of all sizes, including multi-million dollar developments. Here, key points are located in the building footers for a mason who is rapidly approaching.
Our 3-receiver GPS Survey system offers high productivity with 0.5 cm accuracy (static). This powerful stand-alone system can be used along with conventional survey instruments to provide additional capabilities.
Our GPS Pathfinder® ProXH™ receiver delivers subfoot (30 cm) accuracy with Trimble's revolutionary H-Star™ technology, and with a Zephyr™ antenna, accuracy is 8 inch (20 cm). With a Bluetooth® wireless connection we're cable free between the ProXH receiver and field computer. Field data from the Trimble Recon™ handheld is postprocessed back at the office with GPS Pathfinder Office software.
For certain mapping or GIS projects, a backpack assembly makes collecting field data easier and more efficient.
