Observations are measured to survey points in relation to a setup.
Observations are used to measure locations on the Earth's surface that have been determined by surveying (geometric) methods. You can locate points by known coordinates, or in reference to some other known location, such as an angle and distance from an existing point.
When automatic point numbering is off, you must specify the point numbers. If automatic point numbering is on, the points are automatically numbered. Subsequent points are assigned the next available number in sequential order. For information about setting automatic point numbering, see .
It is helpful to establish a point numbering system for all your projects. A recommended point numbering method might be to number traverse points sequentially, starting with 1. If the job contains fewer than 100 traverse points, then number all sideshots observed from point 1 with numbers 101 to 199, and sideshots taken at point 2 with numbers 201 to 299. This method makes it easy to determine where any given point was observed from.

When automatic point numbering is on, new points are automatically assigned the next available point number. When automatic point numbering is off, you must specify new point numbers as they are needed.
Use the Observations Editor to add observations to an existing setup.
In addition to adding observations using the Observations Editor, you can add observations using the survey command language.
Use the Observations Editor panorama vista to edit the observations of a selected setup item in the list view.
You can access a standard set point manipulation commands from the ToolspaceSurvey tab collections and items.
