1 minute transit was used to measure angles. The calculations were done with a Hewlett Packard 9825 calculator. All of the plats were hand drawn using freehand and leroy lettering.
?Johnson Surveying has kept up with the changing times and rapidly changing
technological advances in measuring, computing and drawing. We now use a total station to measure distances and angles. The total station also stores the raw data and computes almost anything needed in the field. We also use GPS (Global Positioning System) technology that allows us to find the precise location of any point in the world. ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?
We also use powerful computers and computer software to do the calculations and drafting faster and more accurately than was imaginable in the 70's.
