What is a TSR file?
A TSR file is a Tracker Status report used by Subsite Electronics software that specializes in horizontal directional drilling (HDD) guidance systems for installing and maintaining underground pipe and cable. It contains an as-built report on the status of the HDD of pipes and cable, which includes water lines, gas lines, and other crossings.
You can create TSR files with the TSR and TSR Mobile applications. These files are based on information in .TSL files, which are created by a TK Series HDD Guidance System.

TIFF Simple Rare File
|ISO/TC 42/WG 18
1.7 | 3 Votes
Image format based on the TIFF/EP standard for the storage of partially processed camera raw images; removes the need for metadata that supports partial processing operations, such as defective pixel removal, demosaicing, flat field correction, distortion correction, and dark subtraction, which makes the image file and file readers simpler and more interoperable.
The TIFF simple rare format is a simplified standard raw format that can be used by a variety of cameras and applications. It was developed for users who want an open standard raw format and an alternative to proprietary camera raw formats that include tags not specified in ISO 12234-2. This format is intended to become standardized and used across all sorts of cameras and applications.
NOTE: Currently, there is no commercial software available that can write or read TSR files.

MATO Total Station Job
1.3 | 4 Votes
A TSR file may also be a job file created by a MATO electronic total station. It contains measurement data recorded using the total station. Surveyors create TSR files when they transfer a job from their total station to their PC.
Surveyors use MATO electronic total stations, such as the MTS600, to measure distances, height differences, and the angle between two points. These devices save surveyors' measurements in a job file. The job file may include both measurement data and coordinate data (the location from which the measurements were recorded).
MATO total stations can send job data to surveyors' PCs, using a communication cable and software provided with the device. When a surveyor pulls job data from a total station (by selecting COMMUNICATION → RECEIVE → OK in the communication software), it is saved as a TSR file. Surveyors can send TSR files back to a compatible total station to review the data they contain.
How to open a TSR file
You can use MATO's total station communication program to send a TSR file to your MATO total station. To do so, first connect your PC with your total station using the communication cable MATO provides. Then, open the total station communication program and select COMMUNICATION → SEND → OK. (You may have to set the program's communication parameters before selecting OK.)
