Record Duplicate Numbers in Nikon DTM-352

Hi Nikon Forum,

My surveyor sent me a raw data downloaded from Niko DTN-352  Version "Nikon RAW data format V2.00". The raw data are obtained from traverse measurement with repetitive angle and slope distance accordingly. below, I copy some data :

MP,1,,9617281.0680,806601.0290,89.8830,PC119

After couple side shots, surveyor measured repetitive distance on traverse points PC119 and PC121 with the following order :

1. shot "direct" @PC119  >> shot "inverse" @PC119

2. shot "inverse" @PC121 shot "direct" @PC121

3. shot "direct" @PC119  >> shot "inverse" @PC119

4. shot "inverse" @PC121 shot "direct" @PC121

Questions:

1. How to set point number on SS @PC119 is always recorded as pntNo# 1 and @PC121 as pntNo# 69 on field (inputted in Total Station)? usually, i edit on "transit editor" manually.

2. How to set or method of measurement using Nikon total station in order to while exporting nikon raw data to fieldbook (autodesk survey format) will get the following format:

    Mr. Zainul !

    I have try to download your file.trn with terra model software like above, but for sharing your question no.1, before your Surveyor save data after measurement, must be change the point shoot with no.1 for @PC119,  also with another, I have used Nikon Nivo 2M almost 2 years.

    Salam kenal,

    • Thanks for sharing Kang Iyep & salam kenal juga,

      Before surveyor carried out traverse measurement, i had instructed to input point number manually on Total Station rather than accept the automatic incremental point number. After surveyor finished and data were downloaded, there were no duplicate points as expected. The raw data replace the point no duplicate them.

      Since then, i suggest surveyor to accept automatic numbering off course consequently i have to edit manually before further processing in civil 3D for traverse analysis and adjustment.

      terimakasih
