EDM is a DOS based data collection program for use with electronic theodolites and total stations. The program, written by Harold L. Dibble and
Shannon P. McPherron,differs from standard
survey programs in that it was specifically designed to help with
piece proveniencing artifacts in Paleolithic sites. The program
uses a configuration file that the user designs. This file
includes the fields and field types that are to be noted with
each recorded point. The program accepts data transfers from
Topcon, Wild and Sokkia theodolites. For more information,
download the program documentation.
We have tested this program on Windows 95 and 98. If you are using Windows 2000 or XP download the separate download indicated below. The Windows 95/98 version also works on HP-95/100/200 computers. A Windows and Windows CE version is forthcoming.
