Monday, April 8
SurvCE Menus: 9-10:30AM
This class is designed to expand your knowledge of the many commands available in SurvCE to speed and ease your work by showing what commands are in each Menu.Carlson SurvCE--#1 Data Collection Software Choice

GPS Fundamentals & Error Sources: 10:45AM-12:15PM
This course presents all the common (and some not so common) GNSS error sources, how they affect the resulting measurements and how to remediate the errors to meet individual project error budgets. The intent of this course is to fill the educational gaps that exist within the survey community on one of the most commonly used but least understood tools employed by survey firms for high production work. This course is ideally suited for anyone who works with GPS receivers and is concerned about controlling the quality fo data produced by their utilization. Instructor: Lance Andre

SurvCE/SurvPC Map Screen: 1:30-3PM
There are more than 75 commands under the Carlson SurvCE  and Carlson SurvPC MAP screen drop down menus FILE, VIEW, DRAW, COGO and TOOLS. In 90 minutes we plan to do a brief overview on each of these commands.

SurvCE/SurvPC Advanced Roads: 3:15-4:45PM
One of the distinguishing attributes of SurvCE and SurvPC is their powerful roading commands. The course begins with a thorough study of the entry and importing of the basic road elements of centerlines, profiles, templates and cross sections. Road stakeout is also covered.

Tuesday, April 9
SurvCE/SurvPC Field-to-Finish: 8:30-10AM
This session will focus on collecting Topography Data using Total Stations, Robots and GPS Equipment. We will spend some time explaining how to use Feature Code lists for creating linework Live in the Data Collector. We will also cover using Robots and GPS to collect Points using our Auto by Interval routine.

Advanced Surveying, Sets/Resections: 10:30AM-12PM
Different methods of collecting sets of angles and distances using SurvCE will be the class topic. We will also show how to use the SurvCE resection routine and how to collect data for processing in SurvNET.

SurvCE/SurvPC Stakeout: 1:15-2:45PM
This session will cover stakeout procedures from single Points to complex Surface models, Centerlines and X-sections. We will go through the software workflow for stakeout tasks such as Design Structures by using both GPS receiver and Total Station. We will also see the different types and sources of data that can be used under the stakeout functions.

SurvCE RTK Setup and Use: 3:15-4:45PM
This course lays out the Carlson SurvCE/PC GPS commands in a structured and easy-to-understand approach. Various RTK equipment configurations will be demonstrated and discussed (Network RTK, Base/Rover UHF, Network Bridge, etc.) including integration of depth sounders and laser range finders for improved productivity. Much focus will be given to understanding the site “Localization” feature and its proper use. Users may follow along using their laptops running either SurvPC or the PC demo version of SurvCE. Instructor: Lance Andre

Wednesday, April 10
Robotic Reflectorless: 8:30-10AM
We will discuss the use of robotic and reflectorless equipment with SurvCE including the functions and settings specific to these total stations.

Come see what Carlson has to offer on Hardware for Data Collectors & GPS: 10:30AM-12PM
This class will demonstrate the many options Carlson provides for GPS, RTS and Data Collectors.

SurvCE/SurvPC working with Other Hardware: 1:15-2:45PM
This class will demonstrate the wide variety of equipment manufactured by other companies that Carlson works on such as Sokkia, Topcon, Leica and Trimble.

New Features in SurvCE/SurvPC Version 3: 3:15-4:45PM
This class will show you what is new in the SurvCE 3.0 release, such as Google, Esri and Bing map overlays that can be downloaded in the field, automated tangent curve fitting in field-to-finish for as-builts, use of the RTCM 3.1 message string for datum and geoidal adjustments in VRS networks, and camera interfaces for storage of images as GIS attributes, viewable as KML/KMZ files in Google, to name a few.
