Why are coordinate systems so important for GS8000?

When collecting data in Free Path mode, all digital findings and linework on the map can be directly output to CAD and GIS platforms, which rely on the data to be geo-referenced in the right coordinate system. Therefore, GS8000 comes pre-loaded with official EPSG regional and state level coordinate systems used by most popular GIS systems, as defined by the Geomatics Committee of the International Association of Oil & Gas.

When you set up the GS8000 to work on a particular coordinate system, the coordinates of every scan or digitized feature are transformed to it, and effectively applied to the different CAD and GIS outputs. This reduces the need to involve CAD technicians in merging and transform field data in the office, which is a common source of error and inefficiency.
