6. 2. Establishing control points
To ensure accurate measurements, the surveyor needs
to establish a control point at a known location.
This can be done using a GPS receiver or a previously
established reference point.
10. 6. Storing the data
Store measurements in its internal memory
or on an external data collector.
The data can include the distance, angle,
and elevation measurements, as well as
additional information such as the time,
date, and location of the measurement.
11. Transferring and Processing the data
After collecting data from different points , those
data can be transferred to the computer and the
specialized software can be used to process the
data and create a detailed map or 3D model of the
area being surveyed.
12. Overall, electronic data recording is an essential
part of the total station's functionality, allowing
surveyors and engineers to collect precise
measurements quickly and easily. The ability to
store and process data also allows for more
efficient and accurate analysis, reducing the
likelihood of errors and improving the overall
quality of the survey or engineering project.
