Trimble RealWorks - 2 Day Workshop

Instructor(s): Dustin Hoaglin – Denver, CO / Bob Green - Albuquerque, NM

Workshop Purpose

Improve employee aptitude regarding Trimble Terrestrial Scanning and Processing to include the Trimble TX series 3d Scanners and processing that data within Trimble RealWorks.  

Workshop Objectives

As the technology of surveying equipment has advanced and kept pace with the technological advancement of society, survey staff need to continually modify and improve their workflows and processes to achieve the accuracies and efficiencies required by clients. This training will provide the material to put in place the workflows and develop the processes needed to meet those requirements.

This workshop will provide technical staff with the knowledge they need to use the software to register scans, clean up point clouds and provide 2D and 3D deliverables. The primary objectives are to increase field & office efficiencies and reduce the time and effort of collecting and processing 3D scan data.

Efficiencies require new workflows and processes regarding topics such as collimation and optical instrument adjustments. After this training, the expectations will be for your staff to utilize the equipment to achieve high precision and accuracy with 3d scan data. This “hands-on” training offered by Vectors Inc. will allow you to fully implement and achieve the accuracies and precisions the instruments are capable of.
