The land surveying industry is always looking for ways to improve productivity and efficiency. Being able to save time and effort in processing field data back in the office will make a big difference to the bottom line. This course aims to do just that by providing a “Field to Finish” workflow, allowing plan production directly from the data collected in the field without the need to export data to another CAD package for finishing and plotting. With MicroSurvey CAD’s in-built COGO and calculations tools, almost all surveying related computations could be done as well, thus providing a complete and essential tool for the professional land surveyor.
