2 Overview How to use the Trimble SiteVision Office How to load design data to GCS900End-State!To be able to integrate your approved design data with heavy equipment earthwork.
3 Learning Objectives TLO Given a survey set general purpose (GP), completed horizontal construction design, data transfer device, corresponding heavy equipment and references, prepare the Grade Control System (GCS) to integrate design data into GCS to guide construction quality control. (1361- SRVY-2006)
4 Learning Objectives ELO 1. Given a survey set general purpose (GP), completed horizontal construction design, data transfer device, and references, import file to grade control software per the Trimble# ENG. (1361-SRVY- 2006a)2. Given a survey set general purpose (GP), completed horizontal construction design, data transfer device, and references, process digital terrain model in grade control software per the Trimble# ENG. (1361-SRVY-2006b)3. Given a survey set general purpose (GP), completed horizontal construction design, data transfer device, and references, upload file into data transfer device per the Trimble# ENG. (1361-SRVY- 2006c)
5 Learning Objectives ELO 4. Given a survey set general purpose (GP), completed horizontal construction design, data transfer device, corresponding heavy equipment and references, establish communication between base station and heavy equipment per the Trimble# ENG. (1361-SRVY-2006d)5. Given a survey set general purpose (GP), completed horizontal construction design, data transfer device, corresponding heavy equipment and references, conduct blade calibration per the Trimble# ENG. (1361-SRVY-2006e)
6 Method and Media Lecture Method Demonstration Practical Application Trimble Tutorial
10 Site Vision Office Who uses the Trimble Site Vision Office? What Site Vision Office is used for?
11 SVO IntroductionAn easy to use data management tool for the Trimble GCS900 Machine Control SystemDesigned for the site data manager and engineerDeveloped for use on all machine typesSimple and efficient transferring and checking design data
12 SVO Introduction, Cont. Ideal software to: Manage data, designs, sub-designs and data card contentLog all data transactionsProvide a complete record of design usageEnsure operators have correct information to maximize productivity
13 SVO, Uses Earthwork contractors and civil engineers can: Import designs from other CAD packages and translate them into the SireVision formatRun validation checksView any profile and check spot heights for inconsistencies for more confidence in the dataBreak verified data into smaller subsets to copy to data cards for use on machines with GCS900 installed
14 SVO, 3D Design Simulation Makes it simple to visually checkthe data before you leave the officeAs you drive a virtual machineover the design, the SiteVisionOffice screens display the same asit does in the machine on the jobsite
15 Data Transfer/Import/Export Its easy to transfer data from CAD and design software packagesTransfer data from most major CAD/desging software such asTerramodel, Paydirt Sitework, AutoCAD, GEOPAK, and InsiteImports a wide range of data formatsExports Site Vision Office format from other leading design packages
16 ? Who uses SVO? What other software is SVO compatible with? 1. EARTHWORK CONTRACTORS AND CIVIL ENGINEERS 2. MOST MAJOR CAD/DESIGN SOFTWARE
17 Create a New SiteSiteVision Office organizes data into sites. When a new site is created it contains:Site mapsRecorded terrainAvoidance zonesCoordinate systemsDisplay configurationsDesignsWork orders
18 How to Create a New Site Start SiteVision Office Select new site icon on tool barCreate a new siteThe Display Options dialogue will appear
19 ? When a new site is created it what does the Site Design Tab contain? 1. Site Maps, Recorded terrain, Avoidance zones, Coordinate systems, Display configurations, Designs, Work orders.
20 Display OptionsThis is where you customize how a site looks in SiteVision OfficeGeneral TabDisplay TabSurface TabSystem Settings Tab
21 Display OptionsIs where you set the units and establish the look and feel for the siteWhen a new site is created the display options dialogue box appears. It has four tabs:GeneralDisplaySurfaceSystems settings
22 Display Options, cont.When finished with the Display Options, press the OK button. To return to the display options in the future to make changes once the site is already started:Select the Tools pull down menuSelect Display Options
23 General Tab Contains: Distance and Coordinates Units Coordinate Order Angle UnitsDirection FormatGrade FormatStation Format
24 General Tab, cont. To change and value within the general tab: Select the valueSelect from the list of options
25 Display TabSet the background and profile line colors for the Plan view, Cross-section view, and the Profile view
26 Display Tab, cont. Set the radio latency legend The radio latency legend is set for blue for all positions that are within 2 seconds. Data messages transmitted from the base station to the machine arrives within 2 seconds. Anything more than 2 seconds the GCS900 will not accept. The machine turns off the cut and fills.
27 Select the options to: Show surface shading for all designs Show road construction linesFill the avoidance zones with color
28 ? How many tabs are there in the display settings? Name those four tabs?General, Display, Surface, Systems settings.
29 Views In SVO you will have three different views to work with. Changes in one view it automatically updates the other views.Allows you to check the design data.Plan ViewCross Section ViewProfile View
30 Plan View “Birds-Eye” view. Graphically displays: Surface Recorded TerrainRoadControl PointsBackground FilesNavigate through by use of Toolbar ButtonsN, E shown on the window Status BarZ shown if cursor is over design surface*.dc file shown used for N, E, Z

41 Establish Communication Ensure that the HE operator knows how to set up and start their GPS equipment.Ensure that you give HE the correct coordinates/coordinate system from the design data.HE is responsible for their Base and Rovers.
42 Blade Calibration Is the responsibility of the HE operator Ensures that their blade is properly calibrated to the GCS900 that is installed on the equipmentIs often forgotten and will cause the blade to dig in the wrong location
43 ?Whose responsibility is it to provide the correct coordinates on the base station for the vertical and horizontal control of a particular horizontal construction mission?Who is responsible in conducting Blade Calibration on a particular Trimble 3D Machine Control GCS900 enabled heavy equipment?1. The 1361 Engineer Assistant is the responsible personnel in providing correct coordinates where the base station will be set-up on.2. The 1345 Heavy Equipment Operator is responsible in conducting blade calibration on a particular heavy equipment he will be operating.
