Laser Rangefinder Drawing Tool

Choose the Icon LaserDistance.PNG Laser rangefinder drawing mode. The Laser Rangefinder dialog appears.


Drawing options

Settings for different working processes can be done in the Options tab.

Direction: Choose between foresight and backsight.

  • Foresight: Measure forwards from your known position to a place with unknown position.
  • Backsight: Measure backwards from a place with known position to your unknown position.

Traverse mode: Choose between linear traverse and radial traverse

  • Linear traverse: Measure a series of points. A measured point is the start position for the next measurement.
  • Radial traverse: Measure a series of points. The start position is always the same.

Draw measures data automatically: Turn on this option if measured positions should be added to the map automatically. Otherwise each position must be confirmed by the user.

Add real world angle to azimut: Turn off this option if declination is already corrected by the laser range finder.

Drawing

  1. Set a reference point: Set it by clicking on the map or get the GPS position.
  2. Measure the features position. Depending on the Draw measures data automatically option the positions are added to the map automatically or they must be confirmed.
  3. Finish a feature by clicking the Stop button.
