Once the 3D model is georeferenced then the user can extract geoTIFFs, photogrammetric plans, cross sections or simply measure distances under scale on the Cave Surveying Notes. Other methods must be applied to other techniques of surveying such as levelling or using a theodolite.

Radio location is typical of these - not much has been done to estimate the errors which can occur. Several people are keen on having an entry screen which is layed out like the survey book page.
