Scott Griffin: Field to Finish, in Carlson Software

Summary:

Field to Finish is way to speed up CAD drafting so you can get 30% to 80% of the data collected in the filed drawn out for you back in the office. Example: You would get correct symbols placed at the point of a FH, 2D and 3D linework for edge of payment. It also allows you to do tree surveys quicker by making a table with all the tree information for them.

Learning Outcomes: 

  • Learn how code things in the field to get linework drawn.
  • Learn how to code things in the field to get symbols coming in for trees and making tree tables.
