Survey & Spatial e-news - July 2012

A new strategic plan for the future of Australian GNSS has been released by the Australian Spatial Consortium. Download a free copy of the plan today!

Archaeologist Andy Herries explains how he uses a total station to measure and record ancient human fossils from around the world, with recent findings that have shaken the foundations of human evolution.


Having increased its survey capacity with the addition of a second robotic total station, NSW's City of Ryde Council has big plans for its new Topcon IS-3, including laser scanning and integrated cloud data transfers.

Topcon's new Tesla handheld data collector is easy to see and easy to hold, combining the advantages of a tablet PC and a rugged handheld computer, with a massive 16-hour battery life!


It seems our latest competition was more of a challenge than we had expected! Thank you to our winner for sending in an amusing survey video, it turns out to be one of only a few we could find in YouTube's vast library. Enjoy!

In this issue, we bring you a step-by-step guide on calculating volumes using Pocket 3D software. This includes creating new TIN surfaces from surveyed points and lines and comparing two surfaces to generate cut/fill volumes.
