We’ll meet in the ARF Atrium and, weather permitting, we’ll go outside with the units. The total stations are our Sokkia SET 5 series that are typically used for precision mapping during excavation.
Our normal workshop includes the process for instrument setup, use, and download and initial mapping tasks. This year the plan is as follows:
1-2pm, Instrument Setup (important step if you haven’t leveled and used a total station in the past).
2-3pm, use of Magnet Field (tablet software) if you’ve used our instruments (and don’t need a refresher on instrument setup and leveling) but haven’t used the new tablet interface you can come a 2pm.
Export from Magnet Field is simplified now because the software exports directly to Shapefile or XYZ for use in GIS or cartographic software.
Please register for our workshop online.
