Surveying at the beach?

These photos show one of the sessions presented at the International CAiCE Users Conference 2002 (ICUC 2002).

The presentation, called "Survey Data Collection", showed the collection of topo data using a Leica robotic total station and a Leica GPS system.

The conference took place in Clearwater Beach, Fla.

This was one of those conferences where people go back to their respective offices (with a nice sun tan), and their coworkers don't believe they were really at the conference.
