It took a couple of tries to get the topo shots just right but when it came time for the Focus 30 stakeout work I was feeling more comfortable with the tools.  The last time I used a total station for field work was in 2001.  Using the Focus 30 has been a real learning exercise.

The Focus 30 robotic total station was used to stake out the hubs from the static survey project.  A motor home parked on line between TR01 and TR04 that prevented a stakeout shot to TR04.  Jeannine made a long boring video of my poking and prodding at the Focus 30 to try and get it to find me through the motor home or to take a shot on whatever reflective surface it could find out there.  It seemed determined to take the measurement to my reflector or not take the measurement at all.  The video may be boring but it was an interesting project on a hot day.

Measuring the same eight hubs with OPUS, different GNSS receivers, various combinations of RTK tools, and the robotic total station may seem boring but it had to be done in between tech support tasks and it demonstrates the three words that guarantee accuracy with any measurement.

Eight hubs measured with different methods and different tools provided an opportunity to demonstrate the three words that guarantee accuracy with any measurement.
