Use the laser rangefinder measurement values (Azimuth/bearing, slope distance, horizontal distance, vertical distance and inclination) to calculate an offset point from a known reference point. Reference point can be set using GPS, established feature point, manually enter coordinates or map tap. Once could also capture/measure lines, curves and polygons as an offset function. Also include a feature to capture height and pt to pt measurements from the laser rangefinder measurement routines. This will increase your productivity and safety since you don't need to physically occupy the locations you have to record.
