GLS-2000: On-board traversing

The GLS-2000 is designed for use with known control points.  However in demo situations and on new sites, sometimes the control is not established.

It is possible to create control points “on-the-fly” and so remove the need for repeat visits.

GLS-2000: On-board traversing

Method 1 – To orient the site to the Initial Control Baseline

1. Go to the set up screen

2. Select on the text where the OCC (Occupation Point) name is

3. This screen with current OCC coordinates will be displayed:

4. Change the coordinates as required:

5. Press OK and return to the set up screen

6. Perform a BS (Backsight) scan

7. Press the BS Check button

8. Note the Raw HD distance

9. Go to the BS name information (by pressing on the text similar to step 2)

10. Edit the coordinates manually by adding the Raw HD to one of the E or N values (103.104,100 in the example here)

11. Press OK to exit the BS check window

12. Press OK to save the information and exit the Setup screen

13. If you need to establish a new foresight coordinate for your next occupation, perform a Target Scan.

14. These coordinates will then be stored to the scanner

15. When occupying the newly established station, under set up, select the list icon and select the correct station name being occupied

16. Select the backsight (BS) name from the list

17. Perform a BS scan

18. Check BS distance

19. Perform scans

20. Repeat as needed. 

Method 2 – To orient the site to the Scanner Zero Azimuth

1. Start Scanner

2. Set up over “Known point” (Point 1)

3. Scan Backsight (BS) target (Point 2)

4. Finish OCC/BS routine

5. From main menu scan target, and choose to scan backsight target again (Point 2)

6. If given the option, store the target as a coordinated point

7. Repeat OCC/BS routine on Point 1 & Point 2

8. Scan

9. Move position


Go to OCC/BS routine.  You should now be able to occupy Point 2 and BS Point 1 (or any other targets that you scanned following Step 7)
