Enter the coordinates of the point to be staked out. The program automatically calculates direction and distance to the point (the two parameters needed for staking out). 3. Turn the total station until the horizontal circle reads zero. 4. Position the reflector at this point (point P’). 5. Measure the distance; the difference in the distance iD to the point P will be displayed automatically.

If two points are known you can also use the resection method to setup and orient your instrument. P' D P N a
