Walk Through a Simple Drawing





The objective for Walk Through a Simple Drawing is simple – walk through the steps to produce a finished survey drawing and send if off for billing.

each step has a short video – some are a little longer

see how TPC does common tasks like adding a legend to a drawing

We create the deliverables for Walk Through a Total Station Survey where you are asked to locate an existing house on an existing lot and verify that it is where the buyer and seller think it is.
