Total Station - SS2 Agriculture Lesson Note

A total station is a modern surveying instrument that combines the functionalities of a theodolite with electronic distance measurement (EDM) technology.

It features a built-in EDM unit that measures distances to points with high precision using laser or infrared signals.

Total stations are equipped with electronic displays and data recording capabilities, making surveying more efficient and accurate.

Surveyors can collect data on angles, distances, and coordinates directly into digital formats for easy processing.

These surveying tools are integral for land measurement, boundary determination, construction layout, and various other applications in civil engineering, architecture, and land development. While the hunter's chain is mostly a historical artifact today, the theodolite and total station represent the advanced technology used by modern surveyors to ensure precise and reliable measurements in their work.
