Most field crews now carry laptop computers, which can reduce the work involved, and many modern instruments and data loggers will display profiles in real time as work proceeds. A traverse line plotted on a topographic map can be used as the baseline for a geophysical profile. This type of presentation is particularly helpful in identifying anomalies due to man-made features, since correlations with features such as roads and field boundaries are obvious. 7). Contour maps used to be drawn in the field only if the strike of some feature had to be defined quickly so that infill work could be planned, but the routine use of laptop computers has vastly reduced the work involved.
7. 2 Cables Almost all geophysical work involves cables, which may be short, linking instruments to sensors or batteries, or hundreds of metres long. Electrical induction between cables (electromagnetic coupling, also known as crosstalk) can be a serious source of noise. Efficiency in cable-handling is an absolute necessity. Long cables always tend to become tangled, often because of well-intentioned attempts to make neat coils using hand and elbow. Figures of eight are better than simple loops, but even so it takes an expert to construct a coil from which cable can be run freely once it has been removed from the arm.

Figures of eight are better than simple loops, but even so it takes an expert to construct a coil from which cable can be run freely once it has been removed from the arm. On the other hand, a seemingly chaotic pile of wire spread loosely on the ground can be quite trouble-free. The basic rule is that cable must be fed on and off such piles in opposite directions; that is, the last bit of cable fed on must be the first to be pulled off.
