Re: Leica total station which outputs X,Y,Z, not angles

I am using Excel to do the calculations and could convert the names there. I pasted the both the X,Y coordinates and calculated buoy positions. That is really as easy of a solution as you developing another import routine, only it leaves the tolerance checking out of your program. I am doing all of ...

Re: Leica total station which outputs X,Y,Z, not angles

I can name the buoys whatever is needed. I used the names from the AWSA SlalomSurvey spreadsheet but would rather stick with IWSF terminology anyway. For the radius correction I convert to polar, add the radius, then go back to rectangular. Yesterday we had an L class tournament and I just pasted th...

Re: Leica total station which outputs X,Y,Z, not angles

That's correct. It would be nice to import the .txt file from the USB drive. I manually input the buoy names into the total station. If I enter G1 for example, it will automatically name the next one G2. It makes it pretty nice going down the line. I manually change the name to P15 when I get to the...

Hi Emmanuel, Thanks for the quick response. Here's what the file looks like: PtID,East,North,Height MP,0.0000,0.0000,0.0000 P1,0.0095,438.0883,-0.7092 P2,-2.1951,438.2718,-0.7100 G1,-4.0481,383.1593,-0.7233 G2,-6.5381,383.3575,-0.7259 G3,-6.2828,356.2386,-0.7047 G4,-8.4700,356.4238,-0.7068 G5,-9.398...

Leica total station which outputs X,Y,Z, not angles

Is there a way to import coordinates instead of angles and distances? Some of the newer instruments output nice .txt files but they only contain coordinates.
Thanks,
Ed
