SMS Complete Suite.

 

SMS Complete suite represents the complete set of tools required in order to execute a survey project combining our Level and Traverse suites. Today's project may involve the combined use of Digital Levels, Total Stations and GPS. Designed for companies of all sizes and all needs, SMS Complete Suite is the foundation for a completely integrated set of end-to-end surveying management applications. The SMS Complete Suite consists of the following modules:

  1. Field book and data interface
  2. Level Network analysis
  3. 3-D Traverse Analysis
  4. Subsidence and deformation monitoring
  5. Level Profiles/Section/Volume Computation with Dredge/Sand-Fill Quantities
  6. Traverse Field Book
  7. Traverse Network analysis
  8. Transformations
  9. Dimensional Control/Deformation Monitoring
  10. Bowditch Table
  11. Geodetic Transformation
  12. Land Records System

Level Field Book
An intelligent field book, indeed. It features a survey and booking assistant, providing among others, in built data validation. Furthermore a survey can start from anywhere and end at any point in a survey network, in any order. The sorting into survey topology is automatic. Surveyors can then focus on utilizing all available time for maximum field productivity. Download or update field book as often and soon as survey parties complete or as convenient. When observations are repeated, the assistant deletes old records and replaces with new survey observations. The editing is automatic. The interface retains survey tradition and is unique as both a spreadsheet and database. Each observed setup has a dynamic allocation for IS observations. Level field book supports direct input of digital levels, Na and Dini series from Leica Geosystems and Trimble respectively. It also supports Sokkia and data loggers such as TDS Survey Pro. There is also the added facility of customizations to suit requirements.

Level Network Analysis
Any network of any complexity is handled by SMS Level Suite. The surveyor has total control by virtue of excellent analytical tools. A network diagram is not required because the software will generate a description. This is a vital tool, as networks tend to change very dynamically in most construction environments. For large networks of about 3000 or more setups and hundreds of loops, this module is indispensable. Pin point location of errors is facilitated through evaluation of loops and closures in the network. Furthermore, the confidence to detect and conclusively revalue the height of that fixed station. With capacity to dynamically generate all the condition equations in a network, apply optimal least squares adjustment, SMS is unique providing the facilities that make a difference between whether a survey project is successfully executed or not.

Subsidence Monitoring.
A very important application of level information is in subsidence and settlement monitoring. Almost every water resource agency and civil engineering construction is engaged in monitoring. In this vein, SMS provides facilities to match the critical requirements in the industry. The standard of Field to Finish means that increased frequency of monitoring does not require increase in manpower levels. The selection of cycles and designation of base, previous and current visits is automated and so the surveyor can go directly to Results for monitoring information. This information is in form of tables, charts, trend analysis and profile analysis. The standard of hardcopies is unmatched and the surveyor can dispense with external packages to present reports seamlessly. The 3-D space in records allows monitoring to be augmented to 3-D. Besides inspection of results, a statistic, Assessment provides a picture of movement for hundreds or even thousands of monitoring points.

Level Profiles and Quantities
Every level run describes a physical profile. With cross-sections, the picture of topography begins to emerge. And with design specifications, engineers can begin to look at the volume of earth quantities. SMS follows the natural abstraction in computing the volume of quantities solely from level runs. These include road applications, with usual accuracy of survey computations. The facility has also been fine tuned for dredge and sand-fill computations. Similarly, enhancements are customer driven and welcome.

Traverse Field Book
This is an intelligent field book that employs heuristics as well as algorithms in reducing traverse observations. It features a survey and booking assistant, who traditionally carry out this exercise. It provides superior judgment to default standards in many an instrument system. So the tradition of observing rounds of angles and human evaluation is retained but combined with sound algorithms incorporating error parameters of a given instrumentation. Strict data validation is enforced with respect to survey data types. A survey can start from anywhere and end at any point in a survey network, in any order. The sorting into survey topology is automated by the assistant process. Surveyors can therefore focus on maximizing the available time for optimal field productivity. Download or update to field book is as often as convenient, for survey parties. When observations are repeated, the assistant deletes old records and replaces with new survey observations. The editing is automatic. The interface retains survey tradition and is unique as both a graphic pad of observed directions, and a spreadsheet and database. Each instrument setup has a dynamic allocation for detail observations. Traverse field book supports direct input of Total Stations, from Leica Geosystems. However there is SMSFmt for easy in-house configuration. Besides, there is also the added facility of customizations to suit requirements.

Traverse Network Analysis
SMS Traverse Suite is designed for high precision 3-D control survey and deformation monitoring. It can therefore handle any network of any complexity. The surveyor has total control by virtue of excellent analytical tools. A network description is provided to complement any existing diagram. This is a vital tool, as networks tend to change very dynamically in most construction environments. Unique to SMS is three-dim loop analysis of closures in the network. This is provided for each of easting, northing and height as well as the linear accuracy for this portion of the traverse. For large networks of hundreds of stations, this module is indispensable. There is also the confidence to detect and conclusively revalue co-ordinates of that fixed station. With capacity to dynamically generate all the condition equations in a network, apply optimal least squares adjustment, SMS is unique in providing the facilities that make a difference between whether a survey project is successfully executed or not.

Transformations
It is common for surveyors to carry out a survey in one datum and list the results in client’s datum. Usually, that involves using one or more packages and several input processes. In SMS, this need is anticipated with a control data base that allows stations to be registered in as many datum. Then after computations, it is a simple matter of listing results from available selection of datum. The transformation is automatic, involving least squares estimation for best results.

Dimensional Control/Deformation Monitoring
One very important application of survey information is in high precise dimensional control and deformation monitoring. Indeed, this is a common requirement in civil engineering. Therefore, in this vein, SMS provides facilities to match these critical and essential requirements in the industry. Field to Finish means that increased frequency of monitoring does not require increase in manpower levels. The selection of cycles and designation of base, previous and current visits is automated and so the surveyor can go directly to Results for monitoring information. This information is in form of tables, charts, trend analysis and profile analysis. The standard of hardcopies is unmatched and the surveyor can dispense with external packages to present reports seamlessly. The 3-D space in data records allows import of level results to augmented 3-D records with superior level information. Besides inspection of results, a statistic, Assessment provides a picture of movement for hundreds or even thousands of monitoring points.

Bowditch Table
Bowditch Table is unique to SMS. While 3-D Traverse is for rigorous least squares adjustments of precision surveys, there are many instances where Bowditch method of adjustment is good enough. And so comes, this innovation, Bowditch Table. It is a database and Bowditch computation sheet rolled into one. The environment is dynamic, so that there may be as many azimuth stations and sub-networks as need be. For traditionalists, this module is a joy and a re-invigoration of old technique in a surveyor’s interface. The hard copy print of this table is ideal and unmatched for record keeping.

Geodetic Transformation
In designing SMS, the goal is maximum productivity. The surveyor would not have to look for solutions outside the environment. The facility for Geodetic Transformation is one further example in this line. The module offers a broad selection of feature rich solutions, including the following:
  1. Transformation from Topocentric datum to spheroid and vice versa
  2. Transformation from NTM/UTM to spheroid and vice versa
  3. Transformation from Geodetic datum (e.g. WGS84) to Clarke 1880 and vice versa
  4. Grid to Grid Transformation, NTM/UTM

Land Records System
The land records system offers professional surveyors in private practice a comprehensive system for automated survey administration. Land Records system is a unique electronic document storage system that organizes survey records and documents in a database, with text and graphics data fields and capacity to hold 16,000 records for each job title. Software is capable of providing automated survey plans to the high standards of cartography but without requiring the use of 3rd party CAD programs.
