The course is designed to follow on from EDM Stage 1, but is also a standalone course. It is intended for engineers and those involved in using total stations/EDM’s to survey and set out for construction and building work. The course is suitable for staff with Total Station/EDM experience but little or no data logging or computerized surveying experience.
On completion of the course delegates should be able to:-
Extract coordinate data from digital drawings.
Import digital data into total stations.
Automatically compute setting out data in the field.
Observe, code and record survey data in the field.
Produce simple survey plots.
Undertake Resection/Free Station.
Complete and record as-built surveys to support quality control procedures.
Produce simple volume calculations from survey data.
Understand potential sources of error when using Total Stations/EDM’s.
Interface recorded data with external software programs.
