A grading contractor hired me to choose a GPS machine control provider, set up each job, calibrate the GPS systems, build the 3d models to be used, perform volume calculations, and many other tasks. I used this experience to get an even better position at a well-reputed firm currently serving the midwest and is at the forefront of the machine control industry. Before this I spent 6 years working for surveying/engineering firms before acquiring my surveying license in the state of Wisconsin in July of 2007.

Most comfortable with the following types of instrumentation
"when you import the files, put them on a specific layer. Then 'create surface' from 'layer' I assume you will need a surface if you intend on calculating volumes. There should be youtube videos available to walk you…"
"That's what I was going to say, cut and paste your Trimble SCS900 Data folder to free up some room. It depends how many files you carry with you, I guess. But that device looks old, and I'm not sure what its specification are, if it…"
For those of you using Trimble Business Center, KEEP THE VERSION YOU HAVE!!! Upgrading to 2.80 will eliminate a LOT of the free commands. If you have a usb or network key then go ahead and upgrade, everything will be fine.See More
Brother Dean, I already have it on my calendar to hook up with you on that weekend...we'll be talking more before then, of course. Thanks for the links and I look forward to a great weekend of fun in the sun, although it seems that we spend more time on talking about the Land Surveying profession than any other topic! Surveyors UNITE once again...well, at least two of them do for a weekend once in a while!
