The 1st Step will be to create a Static Survey Style in Trimble Access. To do this please follow the Zendesk guide in Trimble Access > GNSS Survey Styles > Static Survey Style
- Start Trimble Access
- Select/Create your Project and start a new job.
- Give your job a name, select the correct template (if the available templates don't cover your region then you will have to select your region via the job Properties > Coord. sys. > Select From Library). Make sure you have a Feature Library defined for your static survey. In this instance "StaticFXL v1.0" is selected (available for download at the bottom of this article). Press Accept.
- In the map page for your job, click the GPS icon as below.
- Under the Bluetooth tab, select the S/N of your GNSS antenna for "Connect to GNSS base". If you don't see it in the drop down list then you will have to press the Search button and pair the device.
You can find the S/N on the underside your GNSS antenna.
- Wait a few seconds and your GNSS antenna will connect automatically.
- Go to Main Menu > Instrument > Position
- Put in the height of your antenna, and make sure "Measured to" is set with Lever of R12 extension (the lever arm is the most accurate method for measuring a GNSS antennas height). Press Store.
Refer to the following diagram where (1) is the receiver, (2) is the lever of the extension, (3) is the corrected height to the APC from the ground mark and (4) is the uncorrected height.
- Give the point a name and select "Code"
- Select the code from your feature library that relates to a Static observation. In the StaticFXL v1.0 code library it is Static.
- Fill out the attributes relating to this Code. In this code example it will be a "High Stability Mark", multiple photos of the overall GNSS static setup using the TSC7's camera function and the initials of the Surveyor conducting the survey.
- Your attributes window should look like below after the editing:
- Store your point.
- Go to Main Menu > Measure > Static > Start base receiver
- Select the point stored in step 9 under "Point Name", put in the height of your antenna, and make sure "Measured to" is set with "Lever of R12 extension".
- Press Start.
- Your base is now started, just click "OK"
The download light on your GNSS antenna is now on.
- You can now turn off your TSC7 and head to the next station
- When you come back to this point once its static session is over, just turn on Trimble Access and repeat steps 5 and 6 to connect to the receiver.
- Click on the Base icon as below
- Select "End Survey"
- Select "Static" Survey Style
- Press "No" when prompted to power down the receiver.
- Press "Import Files"
- Select the TO2/TO4 files you wish to import. A tick will appear on the selected ones. Press Import.
- Press Start.
- Eventually the file will transfer from the Receiver to the Controller. Once it is completed you will be greeted by the below message:
- Press Ok.
- The transferred data will be located in the "Trimble Data > Projects > 'project name' > Static Files" folder of your controller. The easiest way to transfer the data is to use the "copy" function once a USB stick is connected to the controller.
- Select the job and the destination folder. Tick all the boxes in additional files and make the JobXML file version the latest.
- Press Copy
