Total Station and GIS

Total Station is a tool for land survey and make all essential measurements to determine the relative position of points or physical and cultural details. A surveying expert with license can become members of various building professions. Total station is used as an electronic-optical instrument used in modern survey and construction. In the workshop of we use Total Station which is combined of electronic theodolite, an electronic distance meter (EDM) and software running on external computer known as data collector. Many fields such as Construction Companies, Disaster Management, Archaeological Survey etc. offers life time career opportunity for a surveyor.
