COLLECTING SURVEY DATA WITH TRIMBLE TSC UNITS


AND PROCESSING FOR CAiCE

Collect data as you would normally do, but use only MDOT codes. Contact MDOT to obtain a list of their
Data Collection codes.

For CAiCE formatting you do not need to use any special codes to start a line. Simply code the line and add
a number to the code e.g. BC1, GUT1, etc. Keep in mind that once you start a line you have no option to
end it. Also, that line will carry on for the rest of the data collection for that day. See Appendix ‘A’ for
example.

Comments/descriptions can be added to the code. Comments are separated by a comma right after the code,
but comments cannot have commas in them.

Process Trimble DC and obtain a CSV (Comma Separated Values).

Make sure you have installed MDOT’s Tugboat (see figure 2) and are using CAiCE’s service pack 8 (see
figure 1). CAiCE service packs can be obtained from http://www.autodesk.com

NOTES:

* USE A LINE CODE (E.G. BC1, SWC1, ETC.) ONLY ONCE IN THE SAME DATA SET.
(CAiCE WILL CONNECT OBSERVATIONS WITH THE SAME CODE).
, Comment separator
* FOR PLACES (ABOVE) WITH TWO POINT NUMBERS A SECOND OBSERVATION IS PREFERRED BUT NOT REQUIRED.
COMMENT CAN BE ANYTHING
* CAiCE WILL NOT HONOR/RECOGNIZE DOUBLE CODING (MORE THAN ONE CODE IN THE DESCRIPTION).
(A MANUAL EDIT OF THE DC FILE MAY BE DONE TO ACCOUNT FOR THE DOUBLE CODES)
