"I joined a crew not too long ago that was upgrading to the R8's but retained a 5800 from the old settup to use if needed.  There were a few settings to change in the survey styles of the Trimble Business Center data collector. It finally…"

Judson Cato commented on ⚡Survenator⌁'s blog post Roundtable Discussion: What is the best total station you used in the field up to now?
"I started out with a slew of older Topcons to use with the HP48's... I spoiled myself working for years with my own Topcon 300 series and a Recon with TDS software. I'm now running a very old model of Topcon with Trimble data collectors.…"

"I hope he didn't bid the job thinking it could be done in 4 days. And then 4 weeks later we had trees and topo lines on the map.  I could only imagine how many trees and how steep the property was.  Did you punch him?"

Judson Cato replied to Jon's discussion Lath Corrections
"i still don't get the 'lath' usage... I've always heard that term used as support for mud walls prior to the mainstream abundance of sheetrock... The day after this thread started I heard it used by some canadian carpenters to…"
