Myles generally orders coloured and black-and-white MasterMap in CAD formats. He uses maps that cover over 300 metres from the site he is working on, which he then transfers to his CAD software to create the necessary location plans.'
Robert purchases location plans in DWG format before going on-site and downloads it to his survey tablet, which has embedded survey software and GPS.
