Why Digital Data Capture? • Capture Once Use Many Times • Control on Data Capture using forms • Verify data accuracy on site • Increases field and office productivity by at least 50% • Reduces overall cost of data capture

Simple calculation of a journey to site • • • • • •

Average field worker salary £25k Hourly rate £13, mileage rate 40p/mile 20 miles to site – 30mins average drive time 4 days per week spent on site Weekly cost £116.00 Yearly cost based on 40 weeks £4,640.00 per year One client we are in discussions with at the moment says 70% of their engineers working week is spent driving to and from site.

Is wireless data transfer practical? • In the past there have been many issues with wireless data transfer – Dedicated servers – Firewall issues – Communications – Cost of devices – Speed of data transfer – Limit of data that could be sent – Network availability = ££££££££££££

What has changed? • www hosted data and acceptance of cloud computing • Removes Firewall issues • Cheap devices including Modems / GPS / Digital Cameras • GPRS / 3G / HSDPA for speed • Communication costs greatly reduced • Data transferred on minimal signal or holds until network available • Create a complete 2 way data flow of work instructions, mapping, GIS data, photos and other information

Trimble Municipal Reporter

Trimble SPAR 300

• Precision 3D Mapping • Model based calculation method

Challenges in EM Utility Survey • Accuracy • Have to trace or follow the signal “peak” • Assumes signal is circular • Not related to site plan • Chalking the road • Re-survey with GPS • Provable quality of results?

Conventional methods also…..

• ….Rely heavily on skill of user….

Why SPAR 300? • The volume and quality of position is far greater than existing methods • Accurate to 5% of true position (relative to GNSS rover)

• 3 m depth range

• Reduce time on site • Reduce labour cost • Enhance quality of data delivered to your client

How SPA 300 works - Each collected point is georeferenced per the measured offset, range, and depth to a utility line target. - This data is modelled against horizontal and vertical RMS values detected from underground electromagnetic signal distortion.

Trimble Access Software • The Utility 3-D positions are fully integrated into Trimble Access software • Export job to DXF, CSV, AutoCAD etc… • Same software platform • SAVES FIELD and OFFICE TIME

Where does the SPAR 300 fit in? Trimble GNSS

Trimble VRS Now

Why VRS? • “The most widely used network RTK solution in the world” ( 2010)

C.A.T. versus SPAR 300

• Depth calculation only possible when the C.A.T. is held vertically over the line

SPAR 300 • Actual position –Red Line • Path walked –Green Line • You don’t need to be over the utility

C.A.T. versus SPAR 300 With C.A.T…… • Depth information not continuous • ….COSTING TIME • Depth information changes with C.A.T. orientation • ….LESS ACCURATE

Why SPAR 300? • Depth information is continuous and independent of the orientation • …NO ORIENTATING.. • …FEWER OUTLIERS.. • …SAVES TIME

C.A.T versus SPAR 300 C.A.T. method

SPAR 300 method:

• Method provides no confidence metrics

• RMS confidence metrics from the positioning process • Enhance the quality of deliverable to client

SPAR Feature Code Library • Configure your library

• Lessen site time

SPAR 300 graphical map • Graphical display • Integrate DXF site plan • Confidence of accuracy display

SPAR 300 Signal strength • Gives graphic of signal strength • …FASTER SURVEY • …SAVES TIME

Profile display • Displays relative profiles • Check job before leaving site • Helps reduce costly mistakes

SPAR Measurement Options… •

Manually: line coded, connected utility line

• Individual utility points • Depth and current recorded as attributes for every point • …Increasing reliability..

SPA Measurement Options • Continuous Topo utility line points. • Can be coded according to the detection accuracy • …JUST WALK TO SURVEY… • …SAVES TIME

SPA 300 Summary

• Much Easier • More Accurate • Significantly Faster

Level Sensor

The Level sensor levels the scan • saves 1 target in registration • dual axis • +/- 5° range • 0,015° accuracy • automatic use in scans

SD-Card – Data Management SD-Card why? • now huge memory capacity (e.g. 32 GB goes 1 week in avg.) • no moving mechanical parts like in formerly used HD • SD hard also transfers project, operator, scanner upgrade, log data • Secure: all data on one medium – NO SCAN DATA ON SCANNER!!
