Each artifact was piece-plotted as follows. The total station was set up at an established datum point. The rod person moved to the location of an artifact while another person filled out the bag for that artifact. The instrument operator read the distance and azimuth readings for each artifact location, and these were recorded electronically. The machine electronically converted the distance and azimuth to coordinate data, which were also recorded electronically. The instrument operator transmitted this information to the recorders at the artifact location either by a portable two-way radio or by voice.
