Analysis of Laser Tracker and Total Station Surveys

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The SMX 4500 laser tracker has proven itself to be a beneficial addition to SLAC's set of alignment tools. Through actual field surveys and laboratory testing, a question regarding some unknown scale factor appearing after adjusting the combined tracker and total station results arose. Through a simple line survey and instrument analysis and then progressing through more and more rigorous network adjustments, the authors deduced that the apparent scale problem was in fact more likely attributed to wrong offset values introduced into the adjustment by mixing TC2002 total station data with the laser tracker measurements. A recalibration procedure of all ... continued below

A recalibration procedure of all of SLAC's total station prisms was designed and analyzed.
