Help With Surveying Traversing

Help With Surveying Traversing

Help With Surveying Traversing

Hi all

I have carried out a traverse of a carpark (my first traverse).

I have used a Trimble S8 Total Station to collect a round of angles between 3 points (STN1, STN2,STN2).

I have exported the data as a .dc 10.7 file and I am now importing the data into Trimble Business Center.

I have no idea what I am doing and was wondering if someone could look at the .dc file, adjust it to see if my traversing was any good.

I have been able to adjust the traverse in TBC & I have created a report but I don’t understand any of it.

Can anyone help?

RE: Help With Surveying Traversing

Maybe the file shows it (I don't have Trimble Business Center), but did you close the loop or was this collected as an open loop? The following links might help: http://www.foresoft.com/Tutorials/CDS1E.htm for a basic approach on calculating it by hand. A three point project would be a perfect one to compare results with.
