When you say a good survey, how wide is your planter? How far away was your base? After planting, did you drive the field edges so you have data for the outside half of the planter? Did you then drive all the ditches and depressions that were in-between planter passes?

Usually field shaping is totally planned in the office. Surface drainage paths first and then making sure all the field can flow to one of the paths to leave the field. It is then ran in the field with benchmarks to make sure everything is correctly lining up with the plan. You also want to have a cut/fill balance as what happens if you are short or long by a bunch of dirt. How much of a max cut do you want to take off any "hill". Intellislope doesn't have a benchmark function. A portable base is more than likely going to give different relative elevations than your planting maps, unless you also ran that with a base surveyed into the same location. You definitely want a base in the field for anything requiring that much precision. You are also going to have to fool it to work as every pass has to meet the parameters.

I am not trying to talk you out of it, but these are all things to consider before getting yourself into more than you bargained for.
