Ogilvie Geomatics present #ToolsOfTheTrade a mini blog series that looks and explains the key tools that we use daily in our work.  

A Total Station is one of the most important electronic instruments used in modern day surveying and building construction. 

Total Stations use electronic transit theodolites in conjunction with a distance meter to read any slope distance from the instrument to any particular spot leading to fast, accurate measurements that can be used in a number of ways.

Data collected and processed may be downloaded to computers for further processing. This has lead to major advantages over more traditional methods of surveying such as a reduction of human errors, lower cost surveys and a massive time benefit. 

Many modern Total Stations are robotic allowing them to be used remotely reducing the need for assistants.
