Suppose a map grid could provide an x and y cordinate.
And a lazer level provide a y cordinate.

It would be nice to have a stick that one could place onto the surface of the earth, and have a machine working in tandem with the stick via gps to compute that exact point's east axis cord., north axis cordinate, and elevation. in relation to many other cordinates collected from a "job-site-area"

and then be able to plot on screen a scaled topography image of all the points collected/

using a fire hydrant, or something


P.S.
Would it be odd for someone who owned (what i think was) a magna stick to request that I find their valves with a 521?
