A Total Station consists of a theodolite with a built-in distance meter that can measure angles and distances simultaneously. Students are trained on using the Total Stations for surveying, area (plan), longitudinal and traverse profiles & contour map.

Course Benefits:

This course is designed to prepare the students to handle sophisticated survey equipment and to execute large survey projects. Knowledge in using Total Station offers careers in various segments where Total Station finds application like
  • Surveying: Survey and Land records
  • Disaster Management
  • Archaeological Survey
  • And mainly in Civil Construction Companies: Leveling, Road profiling, new roads Cut/Fill calculations, Laying of new railway lines.

Structure of the Workshop

This workshop is split into 4 modules:
  • Lecture: Participants would be introduced various concepts involved in GIS and various methods of data collection using Total Station and GPS along with its interpretations.
  • Practical session using Total Station: Participants will be given hands on experience in using Total Station. They will work in team and perform survey operations using Total Station for a particular area.
  • Practical session using GPS: Participants will move along a specified route to:
    • Take route points at important points so that entire route is available
    • Plot all important landmarks on the route
  • Practical session on CAD: This session would involve CAD based plotting and mapping using data obtained from Total Station and GPS.
