Surveys (polar method) To create e.g. an as-built plan, the position and height of points are determined by measuring angles and distances. To do this, the instrument is set up on any prominent point to create a local coordinate system. Enter the coordinates as (X = 0,Y = 0, instrument height i). A second prominent point is selected for the purposes of orientation; after this has been targeted the horizontal circle is set to zero (refer to the user manual). If a coordinate system already exists, set up the instrument on a known point within it and set the horizontal circle to a second known point (refer to the user manual). You can also use the resection method to setup and orient your instrument (see page 22). 26 | Measuring with a Total Station
