Day 1-2: NaviPac 4.5

Learning objectives

The course is structured around a general curriculum to give the trainees a broad understanding of the EIVA NaviPac software solution and make them confident in using it. The focus of the two-day session is usage, and not configuration, which is covered in a one-day configuration course, which the NaviPac operation course can be combined with. 
To enhance trainee competence and confidence, typical construction support and acquisition scenarios are used as examples throughout the course combined with hands-on training, thus taking advantage of the comprehensive simulation functionalities that have been implemented into the NaviPac software solution.

During the course, trainees are guided through how to:

  • Install the NaviPac software solution
  • Understand the basic architecture of NaviPac
  • Perform simple configuration setup with introduction to instrumentation, geodesy and objects
  • Run various programs for different tasks (calibration, documentation, data quality control)
  • Log survey data for different tasks and in different formats
  • Start, configure and use the Helmsman’s Display
  • Create and manipulate waypoints and runlines
  • Use different map background formats
  • Control the logging process from the Helmsman’s Display
