3002 – Introduction to Pathfinder Office Software
Background: Trimble’s Pathfinder Office software makes it easy to manage, correct, and update GIS data from GNSS data collected in the field. With the DeltaPhase differential correction technology postprocessing is easy and extremely effective. Data can be imported from a number of GIS and database formats so your data can be verified or updated. The Data Dictionary Editor component of PFO is also a powerful tool for creating custom lists of features and attributes.
Course Goals & Objectives: Topics to be covered in this module include project creation & file management. Data Transfer both in and out of PFO. Differential correction or “postprocessing” of field data. Display options and the editing of your data, GIS conversions and batch processing.
Prerequisites: This module is intended for first time users of PFO or those who are looking to “brush up” their skills. Users should have some understanding of different GIS file types and the fundamentals of postprocessing.
