I am a home builder that purchased a 5603 with TCS2 data collector running Surveyor Pro 4.7.
I have no experience in surveying but I am slowly learning to use the machine.
My question or problem is I have experimented with staking out a 25'x25' square in my driveway which is pretty level. When I check the points and square it up, it's dead on.
I then tried in my yard with a decent slope. It's telling me it's roughly a 3' drop in 25'. That point is off about 2". I'm not sure how to correct this or what I am doing wrong.
Any help would be appreciated!
