Total Station White Papers
Trimble VISION TechnologyTrimble VISION technology integrates calibrated digital cameras with Trimble S6 and S8 total stations, as well as the Trimble VX Spatial Station. These instruments have the ability to collect survey data, stream video from the perspective of the instrument, and capture panoramic still images. Trimble Access field software overlays survey data on the streaming video, which enhances the surveyor's field productivity when operating the instrument robotically. Trimble Business Center office software overlays survey data on the captured panoramic still images, enabling the surveyor to efficiently document features that were surveyed. Trimble Business Center also enables the surveyor to make terrestrial photogrammetric observations and compute point coordinates using the
Trimble VISION images. Trimble VISION photogrammetry is a survey tool that precisely measures points which were previously time-consuming, dangerous, or impossible to collect using other techniques.
"Trimble Integrated Surveying Techniques" white paper, Trimble 2005This paper describes how Trimble products support Integrated Surveying for real-life survey applications. It also discusses techniques that combine, transfer and process data from GPS and conventional instruments. The techniques are applied to real-world survey applications to provide customers with an understanding of how Integrated Surveying can increase survey productivity.
