Next is proper procedure on setting up the equipment; actual field work, applying field application and data gathering. We also add on our training sessions the limitations of the instrument you needed to know, that every equipment such as GNSS RTK has its own limitation, so be wise in purchasing one, a lot of supplier will tell you that it can measure on every areas even inside the buildings. Be careful with this kind of supplier and make sure to investigate the companies who’s capability for after sales services a lot may tend to be just all talk and when problem occurs the money you paid has now gone to waste. What we do is not just a show and telling you everything what is good with the equipment, but we let you know what it’s all limitations and what action should be done when this limitations has been met. We sort some example and give an idea on what can be done. Every problem has a solution, you just need the right advices from a professional or expert on GNSS RTK user. Some would tell what to do and if does not work they would run away and forget about you.
After the actual training outside the quarters, we headed back to the meeting area to teach them on how to process the data and Import/Export of data thru various 3rd Party software such as AutoCAD, Civil 3D, E-CAD Survey, ArcGIS, MapInfo, Nmax, GE Survey and other leading surveying software. Training with ALC Explo mining surveyors went well, we added some new ideas, knowledge and how to operate easily in using the GNSS RTK. We guided them until they had learned the proper way of using it.
