The Total Station Total stations are used wherever the positions and heights of points, or merely their positions, need to be determined. A total station consists of a theodolite with a built-in distance meter, enabling it to simultaneously measure angles and distances. Today’s electronic total stations all have an opto-electronic distance meter (EDM) and electronic angle scanning. The coded scales of the horizontal and vertical circles are scanned electronically, and then the angles and distances are displayed digitally. The horizontal 14 | The Total Station distance, the height difference and the coordinates are calculated automatically and all measurements and additional information is recorded. Leica Geosystems total stations are supplied with a software package that enables most survey tasks to be carried out easily, quickly and efficiently. The most important of these programs are presented later in this document.
