Showing a chart of the distance measurement

Reporter: Hello I am from the BBC and we want to make a report about surveying from yesterday till tomorow. I want to ask several surveying technicians what they are doing! So, what are you doing?

Daniel: Hello! We are making a distance measurement.

Reporter: Can you tell me what these devices are?

Floris: This is a prism and over there is the totalstation.

Reporter: ... and how do they work?

Daniel: The totalstation sends a lightbeam to the prism that reflects the lightbeam.

Floris: With help of the lightbeam the fieldcomputer calculates the distance and shows us the data on the display.

Reporter: ...and what are you doing with the data?

Daniel: We can show you what happens with the data in our office.

We connect the fieldcomputer with the personal computer and the data is loaded onto the PC.

Floris: With the loaded data we can draw a map in our CAD-program "geograf". In this program we can produce the map with help of the coordinates and the result is our distance measurement on paper

Reporter: ... and now the measuring is complete?

Floris: Yes, the chart is the result of our work!

Reporter: It was really interesting, thank you for answering my questions. But now I would like to know how surveying in the future will be.
