Coordinate correction

Coordinate correction

During a survey with a total station (Leica TCR 705 auto), it was introduced a wrong coordinate (in the "y") in one of 9 base stations, so part of the survey is in a completly different place. How can I correct these points? I used a backsight,but I dont have the total station with me anymore.

RE: Coordinate correction

If you know the difference between the good position and the bad position and have a couple of points to check into, you can do a coordinate transformation. Or it might be easier to just re shoot your topo using the correct values on your control.
