I located the tops of some trees(about 350 points) using an instrument in reflector-less mode from a point on the ground. I also have a point that I have a coordinate on, roughly 7 meters above my ground point which cannot be occupied by an instrument.I need to determine what the zenith angles would be from the elevated point to the tree tops.I was trying to do the " transformation" for lack of a better word,in Leica Geo Office and Carlson Software but can't figure it out. Also, I'm not really sure how to do it using a calculator.I'd appreciate any input or suggestions on how to do this. Perhaps some other software is capable of doing this.
Thanks so much, Capt.Howdy
