"Just another reason I despise TDS."

ROB ROSA replied to Ian harvey's discussion Advise on an entry level reflectorless total station
"Topcon. Older GPT 3000. The new Topcon is garbage. Nikon is your best bang for the buck...NPL series."

ROB ROSA replied to Matthew William Newsome's discussion How do you measure your heights?
"In essence...you are taking a slant measurement...a hypotenuse. Cut a hundredth or so from your slant. I think Leica has a bracket that clips to the tribrach and has a tape measure on it and takes into account the prism height."

"Look for Windows sync center in the control panel for Windows 10. I'm told this is the solution."

One Man Surveying

So......I've been working in this business for a few decades.  I've been a member of a 4 man crew, 3 man crew, most typically a 2 man crew, and now, for the last 10 years, a one man crew.Robots and GPS have been around for enough time that they are both considered "conventional".My question.........Is a one man crew truly efficient?See More

Travis Jones replied to ROB ROSA's discussion One Man Surveying
"When I started surveying, it was a 4 man crew. Rear chainman, head chainman, instrument operator and a party chief. Then the distomat came about. eliminated one man. Then we got a geodimeter 600 robot. Eliminated yet another. Now with 3D scanners,…"

ROB ROSA replied to Lee Bodenheimer's discussion Loma. Lag question
"Flood water has to get up to the hight of the window well before it gets into the window....lowest grade next to the window well is what we use for LAG."

ROB ROSA replied to Christian Vella's discussion BEST METHOD FOR HIGH RISE CONSTRUCTION - GPS?
"All depends on the control you have to come from. Stay away from resection. Do not use GPS. Pick a control line and stick with that one control line...if you can't set up rectangular control lines for each of the buildings. Use a total station…"

ROB ROSA replied to Michael Turnrose's discussion Syncing Allegro DC with Leica TCR 703
"This is a direct copy from their knowledge base. I know 2.58 is a higher build number...but they kept most all the settings from the 1.67. Try to get a hold of Brian Hammer....he's the TS guru. If you do get to him...tell him Rob Rosa said…"

Joseph Staton replied to ROB ROSA's discussion One Man Surveying
"Yes we do. I know full well having a like minded person by your side is great. For me over 30 years they come and go. That's the main reason I work alone. I found a company lets me say when I need someone. They see I know what I'm doing…"

ROB ROSA replied to ROB ROSA's discussion One Man Surveying

I have GPS and Robotic Total Station. I had to work by myself for 9 months looking for good help. The only time a 1 man crew is more productive is a big GPS topo. Anything else is way easier and more productive with good help. After we do the field work my helper can do the CAD drafting while I keep up with administrative chores. We are even making more $ now.
