Today, Marketing Intern Eric Poublon had the opportunity to tag along with the Land Surveying department for a day in the field.
Eric joined Morgan and Marty at Southern New Hampshire University this morning for part of their Topography and Utility Survey. Morgan and Marty demonstrated how the Prism Pole is tracked either manually or robotically by the operator or the Total Station Theodolite. This lets the team record precise measurements by communicating the vertical height and horizontal depth, allowing the instrument to draw a three dimensional line between the two surveyors and their equipment. The line will then be used to produce a topographic map of the site. They also recorded where the electrical and sewer manhole covers were located along with catch basins in the area.
Eric enjoyed his time out in the field with the Land Surveying department and getting to know the work and expertise of others at TFMoran!
