First post here but been reading for a while now. I would like to know how do you do network surveys, do you use projection on your total stations or you do war survey and then adjust network with projection parameters?
I was talking with a friend and he says that you should do raw survey and then adjust with projection. I was allways doing everything with projection. And we are talking about coordinates that are in projection in their final state.

Depends on how you want to attack it. I perform the survey in the projection completely. You just need to know your scale factors when using a total station or laser scanner.
The benefit is knowing coordinates at the time of survey instead of having to post process.
I too prefer to have the projection information rather than to go for back-office data processing
Can you please elaborate as to where I may find that information for moving forward on that.
