Land Surveying & Remote Sensing

Land surveying refers to a science of measurements and survey for determining physical and cultural details. Surveyor experts can become members of various real state professions. The electrical-optical instruments used for surveying is commonly known as total station.

The modern Total Station we used foe surveying is a combination of electronic theodolite, Electronic Distance meter and software for data collection and analysis. The career perspective of this technology and practice are Civil Construction Companies, Surveying: Survey and Land records, Disaster Management and Archaeological Survey.
