Whether you are a student taking surveying and engineering classes or a surveyor starting out on a budget Student Cogo from RAMSS is the tool for you. The HP48 has proven to be a popular tool for engineering students because of its universal applications. Packages are available for chemistry, electrical engineering, structural design, hydrology, hydraulics, and now surveying.
RAMSS has been providing students and engineers with HYDROmate and HYDRAtools, our hydrology and hydraulics applications for the HP48, for several years. Now we are releasing a complete, low cost surveying package designed just for the student.
Our design concept was simple. The student needs to solve all the problems which are handled by more expensive surveying computers. What the student does not need, and should not have to pay for, is the ability to handle large volumes of data. Student Cogo is designed to run without a RAM card to help keep your hardware cost low. And because interfacing is one of our most expensive issues, both in software development and technical support, Student Cogo does not communicate with Total Stations. This allows us to provide you with a more complete software package at minimal cost.
Student Cogo provides all the functions used in day to day surveying work. These include Inverse, Traverse, Stakeout Tie, Sideshot, Resection, Offset/Run, and Triangle and Circle solutions. In addition to these it also includes:
Student Cogo card can be used in either the HP48SX or HP48GX. *Point storage estimates are for the 48GX. The 48SX will store several hundred points.
The Student Cogo Coordinate Geometry software is the most powerful, and affordable software package on
the market. The software is designed to let you perform survey computations with ease. The software comes
on a plug-in card for the HP48GX or HP48SX. The following programs are included:
Select type of input
Manual entries include:
All Trig functions can use angles in degrees or DMS format. The following functions are included:
Sin, Cos, Tan, ASin, ACos, ATan, RD, DR, RP, PR, DMS+, DMS-, DMS×, DMS÷
A simple yet powerful compass rule program. It allows you to test angles and closure separately or
simultaneously. You can edit and test the data numerous times before adjusting it into a cogo file.
It can print a summary to a serial or infrared printer.
The volume program allows you to quickly calculate and print cut/fill volumes from cross-sectional data.
The current version of Student Cogo is 1.1. If you have an earlier version see updates for information on ordering the latest version.
