Instrument and Backsight Error

FNG Member


One of our surveyors made a mistake during his station setup using a TSC3 with trimble access and selected his BS number for his Instrument and his Instrument number for his BS. Obviously all the data is not in reverse/upside down. Any tips with TBC on how to fix this??

Sorry, I can't help you as I know nothing about TBC. Just want to mention that this is such a common error, all surveying software should have a tool for dealing with it. Carlson Survey has a "renumber point" command in its raw file editor that can fix this in a matter of seconds. I hope TBC has something similar.

In TBC, under Project Explorer go to Imported files.  Expand your job file and you can change the backsight point number for the station setup.  You will have to change it anywhere it appears in that setup.
