After a few years of experience with computerized surveying systems, surveyors are finding that increased efficiency and accuracy are justifying capital expenditures. Several users of totally electronic surveying system are profiled, with users reporting the areas in which they realize time and manpower savings. The interaction of electronic distance measurement equipment, electronic theodolites, field data collectors, office computers programmed for surveying, and automatic plotters in an almost no hands system are analyzed, as are the differences between the leading systems.
