LSU Now Has A Music Player on Each Profile

If you like, you can now add your favorite music to your profile, by simply uploading music files from your computer. Show the group what you listen to when you are in field or just at home relaxing. If everyone were to do this, pretty soon we can all get a glimpse into what surveyors are listening to all over the world. I'm going to go to my profile and do that right now! I can't wait to hear your favorite songs...Good Luck Surveyors...!

Internet RTK work is challenging



Here is a photo of the new GPS+GLONASS antenna for the ProFlex500.



Now it is about the ProFlex500 and how to set it up as a RTK base station. I was able to record a long static session that let me get an OPUS position for the base. The location is not ideal but OPUS processed the data anyway.



Soon it will be time to set up the RTK base station and let other people connect to it.…

Saved by the Robot

Saved by a Robot at the Park





It was a noisy balmy day at the Hudson Riverside State Park. As renovations on an existing road was laid out by my partner and I. A crowded work site as everything in NYC is. However we managed to get in do the work as the ground under our feet shook as the excavation began. We took our Trimble S6 Robot and set it up to begin our layout. My Partner (Veteran Surveyor/Marine Sergeant)took his 16 plus years of experience and laid out the… Read more →

Change is a comin...

Well today is George Bush's last day as president. Even through all of the crap and media bashing I think George was a great president. I am looking forward to see how the next four years are going to turn out. I think Obama's heart and mind is in the right place, but I am wary of the people behind him. Ayway, Hail to the Chief.

When Eagles fly

When Eagles fly



A cold Decembrrr morning would find me in the Western NY Hills of Monticello. My partner and I surveying a hillside for a construction crew. Taken by a movement across the big blue sky. A brisk south easterly wind filled the sprawling wing span of a bald eagle moving it directly into our sight path. The eagle climbing higher and higher turned its circles of flight into a hypnotic trance. For a moment we just starred at this pristine natural beauty. Emmm I can still… Read more →

Trimble 5800/5700 Initialization problems

We've had the Trimble 5800/5700 RTK set up for some time and we have had problems with it from day one. Poor initiallization taking over 45 minutes. Poor performance with the the Trim Mark radios or the Airlink mobile units. Has anyone had these problems and figured out a work around? We've played with settings but to no avail.

Civil 3D Volumes

Does anybody out there know how to get a comprehensive volume report out of AutoCAD Civil 3D.

So far I have only been able to get a three line report showing cut, fill and nett but I would really like something a little more intensive.

Heres hoping someone out there knows more than me.

Thanks for your help

I ran across something unusual the other day.

I'm by no means a computer geek so I will try to explain this the best I can. I was working on an AutoCAD drawing and had the drawing minimized so it was using half of the monitor's screen area. On the other half of the screen I was viewing a survey of record available online from the County Surveyor's office as a .tiff file which is made available by way of a Java application or platform (not sure of the correct terminology here). Well anyway I walked away from my computer for a while and when… Read more →
