A training session with our Sokkia total stations is planned.
Please register online
We’ll meet in the ARF Atrium and go outside with the units. The total stations are our Sokkia SET 5 series that are typically used for precision mapping during excavation.
Our normal workshop includes the process for setup and mapping with the units as well as the download procedures and export from Sokkia to a standard Text coordinate file.
This year is going to be different because we’ve purchased a 7” Toughpad controller for each Sokkia so now we have a nice display system for wirelessly controlling the Sokkia units (via Bluetooth) and viewing the resulting map data graphically while in the field. The software is an upgrade from Sokkia Survey Field (SSF) that some of you have used. Topcon purchased Sokkia recently and they’ve rebranded.
We’ll be learning how to use Magnet Field with our Sokkia systems. We’ll cover the same setup issues (leveling the instrument, etc) but this time we’ll also learn how to use Magnet to simplify the initial setup as well as taking points and possibilities for designing a data dictionary to expedite feature mapping.
Anyone planning to use one of our units or interested in learning the new Magnet software please register for the workshop.
