Learn to do takeoff of original ground and rough grade modeling of proposed design from plan sheet PDFs. Topics include entering materials first, data entry, data editing, corrections for stripping and compaction, deduction of paving sections, quantity analysis, formatting reports and the geo-referencing of plan sheets and takeoff data for viewing in Google Earth and on site in AGTEK mobile apps. Also get an introduction to entering underground utilities.

Use CAD files to speed up takeoffs and improve precision of GPS models for Leica, Topcon or Trimble control systems. Topics include techniques for selecting and transferring CAD data, use of standardized line labels and colors, techniques for assigning elevations, the advanced use of templates, the staging of data, multiple surfaces, map projections and state plane coordinates. Learn to view and validate models on site using AGTEK mobile apps.

Learn to create a structure list and takeoff material quantities from PDF plans, drone images, or integrated earthwork takeoff data. Topics include how to takeoff underground utilities to calculate trench excavation, imported material quantities, depth bracket analysis, and clash detection; how to fly dirt-simple drone surveys, process photogrammetry, and derive accurate progress quantities from orthoimages and point clouds; how to takeoff highway cross sections and generate mass diagrams for haul analysis; how to phase the materials and earthwork quantities on highway projects, and how to motivate and empower the foreman on site by funneling geo-referenced, graphical production feedback directly to AGTEK apps on his cell phone or tablet.
