This ebook describes an approach (using mobile computing devices such as smart phones and tablet computers) to maximize the effectiveness/efficiency of ground survey crews while collecting ground points (coordinate data) along a LIDAR-scanned corridor and/or area. For electric power transmission rights-of-way, most of the work is carried out in rural or remote territories – off the grid - with no access to the internet. Knowing the route (especially the boundaries of the route) is of paramount importance to the ground surveyor charged with collecting point coordinates necessary and sufficient to prove/disprove the vertical (and horizontal) accuracy of the LIDAR data.

This ebook is written for the benefit of land surveyors in general; but, more specifically for land surveyors who support the quality assurance efforts of LIDAR data providers.
