Non-NRCS* Software Manual

WinPond 2006, Version 1.5 is a computer program used for the design of small farm ponds and other runoff impoundments. SET Phase I is a computer program used for field office use. SET is an easy-to-use tool that provides the basic functions to develop, display, and print contour maps from field office survey data. SET works similarly to Computer Aided Drafting and Design (CADD) programs but contains only basic features to create and modify survey maps. EFT: SET Training Video. This 40-minute video provides training on how to use the Engineering Field Tools (EFT) and the Survey Engineering Tool (SET) module. This video helps new users and those who have limited experience using EFT or SET. The video walks the viewer through the basic functions of the software. Narrator: Kip Yasumiishi, Agricultural Engineer, NRCS, West Ntional Technology Support Center. AutoCAD 3D Map 2006 AutoCAD 3D Map 2007 Civil 3D CADD 2007
