24 kb
One key to proper engineering CADD products is ensuring the field collected data has been analyzed for errors/blunders, & then proper resolve of the problem is taken. This presentation will teach students how the most common problems in survey data can be resolved using the Electronic Field Book Processor (EFBP). Functions in EFBP will also be discussed which ensure that the integration of GPS produced control coordinates are properly integrated with total station observations. Lastly, time efficient field checks will be discussed that can enhance the reproducibility of the field collected information.

21 kb
Real-time kinematic (RTK) GPS is a procedure that enables satellite positioning to achieve engineering design accuracies without any form of office post-processing. RTK production advantages & disadvantages over conventional means of field collection will be discussed. Students will learn how the RTK data can be efficiently integrated into standard CADD softwares such as Geopak will be demonstrated

In addition to ByLevel symbology, you can define a secondary set of symbology attributes (color, line style & weight) called level symbology overrides. Level symbology overrides are for display purposes only & do not actually modify element attributes. Level symbology overrides are useful when you wish to make all elements on a given level display with the same symbology attributes, regardless of whether they were placed with ByLevel symbology or element symbology.
