How to Set-Up a Total Station to Conduct Surveying Operations
Great points. Performing a resection is usually the easiest way to set up. No benchmarks needed.Thanks
Thank you IamGutter!
This sure does bring back memories from before our AF green boots. I would use an electric heat gun to quickly heat up the wax and buff it to an amazing shine.
True, but now we have a much simpler way of showing it. Yes, my hat would be flipped around 180. Thanks for the comment!
Thanks dstreng! The goal of this instructable was for it to be used by young surveyors just getting into the field or those that need a little refresher. However, I wanted to keep it simple enough that anyone could understand the basics. Thanks again for the feedback.
Sorry, but this is all mentioned in every manual that comes with these instruments. The only thing you showed was how not to wear your cap during your surveys.... - fvan den hoeven
I think it will definitely be useful for that purpose for sure, and I imagine when you are just getting into the field it would be nice to have something like this to help out. - dstreng
Wow, what a great tutorial. If I ever need to do any surveying, this will come in handy for sure. :)
