In our previous post, we reviewed how to set up your base on a point with known geographic coordinates. But what if you have the local coordinates of your base? The workflow is easier than you think!
In one of the latest ReachView 3 updates, we’ve added the ability to pick coordinates of the base from a survey project. And that’s a key ingredient in the whole workflow. Basically, ReachView 3 still needs geographic coordinates and ellipsoidal height as a base position. But getting them wouldn’t bother you anymore, the app will convert them by itself.
Well, let’s get to the practice:
- Go to the Survey tab and create a new project in the coordinate system and vertical datum of your base coordinates.
- Import the project with your base coordinates or add a new point with them manually.
- Go to the Base mode tab and hit Configure button.
- Choose the manual coordinates entry method and hit Choose from project.
- Select the necessary point.
- Toggle Use antenna height and enter the height of your tripod in the Measured height field.
Done! To make passing these steps easier, we also prepared a screencast for you:
All that remains now is to configure passing corrections, and you’re all set for surveying
