Haney 1. Began by picking a point in the UK main field. This will set as your first point. Put a stake into the ground at this point to set-up the total station over. 2. Set-up the tri-pod and get it as level as possible before placing the total station on the platform. Once the total station in on the platform use extreme caution. 3.

Now send the rod holder in the direction of where point 2 will be. This should be directly horizontal at a 0 ° angle. The rod holder should be 18 feet away. Take a shot and see how the distance relates to that figure. Adjust if needed and then place another stake at that point. Take another shot and record this data as the as-built stake. 5. Now using the Pythagorean Theorem, find the angle that must be turned and the distance to the other corner diagonal from point 1. 6. Repeat step 4 using the angle and distance found in step 5 to locate the stake at point three. Once the stake is set. Take a shot and record as the as-built stake. 7. For the fourth corner of the property, a 90 ° angle should be turned and...
