Dropbox File Repository - Survey Pad Paper - Never Tear Paper - DistoX2 checklist
The NZSS file repository contains many documents of interest to NZSS members. A few of them relevant to surveying are discussed and can be accessed via the public links in the 'Projects' section above.
In case you don't use a computer or phone to collect survey data yet. Download the attached files below. Two flavours, one has the traditional 5mm grid and the other a high tech 2mm grid. Designed to print double sided on waterproof (Never Tear) paper, then be trimmed, glued in pads and hole punched. Make sure the surface to be glued is scored first, else the pages will likely fall out. If you want a pre-made pad, contact the NZSS Maps Officer.
Never Tear paper is good for printing maps to take into the cave. Make sure you 'laser print', not photocopy. If you photocopy, the toner chips off in the cave. It is waterproof, can be drawn on both sides, with pen or pencil, above and below water and makes a good laser target. It comes in the following weights;
|95 microns||light||cave survey pads, cave proof maps|
|145 microns||medium||for cave maps you can stand on|
|270 microns||too heavy||business card weight|
Only print what you need - it is plastic after all, and we have enough of that...
