Station Setup using Smart Pole GPS Resection

Station Setup using Smart Pole GPS Resection


U

Smart Pole enables the user to integrate the TPS and GPS sensors to complete a
survey with a minimal number of station setups. With the single press of a hotkey a
switch from one to the other can be made without breaking stride.

At the start of a survey the TPS and GPS must be positioned and oriented in the same
coordinate system. This guide concentrates on using a Resection (Free Station)

To start this exercise, create a new job with the coordinate system selected from the
site you are working on. This can be a national system such as OSGB36 or a local
system defined using Determine Coordinate System.

Select the Station Setup program or


divert into it using the Setup (F3)
1 button from any applications begin
screen.

Press Cont (F1) to proceed.

At the Station Setup screen set the


method to be Resection.

2 Give the instrument location a name


and key in the instrument height if
necessary.

Press Cont (F1) to proceed.

You will now be asked to select then


measure to target 1. In this example
we need to attain a position for the
known point. We will use GPS to do

If using a PDL Ref and Rov GPS


system the fixed solution will be
resolved automatically. If using
Smartnet select Connect (shift F3) to
4
obtain the ref data.

When RTK fixed solution is resolved


Press Occupy (F1) to observe the
point.

When the GPS observed point has


been occupied the Measure Target 1
screen will appear again.

Turn the instrument onto the prism
(using Powersearch (F12) and press
All (F1) to measure the point with
the TPS.

Once the point observation with TPS


is recorded you will be asked to
Measure Point 2. Repeat steps 3, 4
and 5. Once two known points have
been observed with angles and
6
distances using the TPS the Calc
(F5) button becomes active.

You now have the choice of


observing Point 3 or calculating

The calculated coordinates of STN 1


are displayed along with the bearing
to the last observed point.

To add more points and observations


into the survey select Survey (F5) or
if complete Press Set (F1)
