EDMWIN
EDM is a Windows 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, Leica, Nikon, Wild and Sokkia total stations.

We have tested this program on Windows XP and Vista.  It likely works on Windows 2000 as well.   We do not know whether it works on Windows 7.

UPDATE (February 25, 2010). We have updated both the installation and the program itself. Many people were experience problems with the previously posted version. We are working with a group now who is testing this version, which is the same version we use in our own work. If you experience problems, please do contact us so that we can solve the installation issues.
