The Spar 300 from Vivax-Metrotech is a precise utility surveying system that collects positions in site coordinates, in a package that adapts to a range pole, ATV, riverboat or push cart. It continuously logs the utility depth and offset with statistical confidence and automatic offset calculations. Using a Bluetooth or USB link, the instrument outputs the 3-D positions to a Trimble TSC3 or tablet for real-time display on the Trimble Access map, independent of its own perspective with respect to the utility or the GNSS antenna. When a complex locate scenario is encountered, it applies automatic tolerance masks to the position data, flagging these areas on the map. 800/446-3392;
