Would love to find time to master Matlab & Simulink software so as to be able to write GPS algorithms and maybe do a Masters in this field so as to move out of the "Cadastral Club" and work for Trimble or Leica designing the latest GPS/GLONNAS SOFTWARE AND bubble headed boobies for you to set up when you go out into the field.
Fascination with along with experience, Tripod levelled and over survey mark, Laser Scanners, their incredible accuracy,
and fantastic billion point resolution to sub cm level, so far....Still rather pricy at the moment for many surveyors
needing them only for detail surveys...
