Webinar Presenter: Robert Green - Vectors, Inc.
Webinar description: This session will describe seamless integrated survey workflows. My presentation will feature projects on which I have worked, that incorporate: VRS RTK data, terrestrial total station observations, scan data and panoramic photos into one file. The session will begin with an overview of the hardware used, including features and functionality. Integrated survey theory will be described, including GNSS data capture with simultaneous scanning and panoramic photo capture. Application examples will be discussed highlighting where these workflows can save you time, money, and manpower. The sessions will also describe processing in office software, including the benefits of utilizing Feature and Attribute libraries for simplified line work generation. An overview of surface creation and quality control inspection using exaggerated 3D views will be shown as well as various end deliverables such as panoramic photos in Google Earth, reports and spreadsheets.
Speaker Bio: As a 3rd generation surveyor, Bob began his career in 1973 working weekends and summers with his dad in Central New England. In 1978 Bob was employed by the BSC Group in Boston, Mass. where he gained his first insight into the world of GPS. In 1986 Bob moved to Colorado in search of new opportunities. He spent the next ten years in Southern CO working as a Crew Chief and part time for the Pueblo County Surveyors Office helping to bring the first GPS Geodetic Control Network to this part of the State. In 1992 Bob became registered as a Colorado Professional Surveyor. In 1996 Bob went into private practice specializing in Geodetic Control, Cadastral Retracement and Right-of-Way Surveys. Between 1998 and 2002 Bob was appointed to two consecutive terms to the Colorado State Board of Registration for PE and PLS Monitor Panel. In 2002 Bob was the recipient of a Presidential Citation from the Professional Land Surveyors of Colorado and the co-recipient of an American Council of Engineering Companies Award for a cadastral and R-O-W retracement survey in Southern Colorado. In April of 2003 Bob retired from surveying and accepted new challenges relocating his family to Central New Mexico where he currently holds the position of Geodetic Consultant at Vectors Inc, The Trimble survey dealer in NM and CO. Additionally, Bob has been a measurement consultant to the US Government. His missions include: Developing unique kinematic workflows on machine control GNSS receivers mounted to Amphibious Assault Vehicles for the USMC, layout of an Interferometer Vacuum Telescope for the USAF in conjunction with New Mexico Tech., a Geodetic Control Survey for a Lunar Laser Telescope and Astrohaven Facility for NASA at the Johnson Space Center and an Integrated Spatial Imaging Survey of a Drug Tunnel under the US/Mexican Border for USACE and US Border Patrol.
