-Total Station for Topographical & Engineering Surveys-


Course Out Line:

This course provides general guidance on the use of total station on topographic surveys. Topographical surveys are carried out to accurately map site features and survey ground levels to provide a 2D or 3D map of the site. The survey data is typically used by architects or engineers to provide information for planning or design purposes.
