Survey using industry-preferred Total Station

  • Learn by Doing with 5-6 hour sessions each day
  • Revise your surveying knowledge with latest industry trends
  • Learn how to operate Total Station equipment
  • Survey and plot maps of an entire area on your own
  • Prepare a Topographic Data Base of the site

Course Introduction

Civil Engineering projects are hugely dependent on land surveyors to provide precise and timely site information. That is the reason why Total Station equipment is preferred by professionals.

Also, the information retrieved can be mapped to Geographic Information Systems (GIS) software to perform further geographic analysis of the surveyed area.

This training program gives you on-field experience of Total Station followed by project analysis using software mapping tools. Here’s what you’ll learn by hands-on sessions:

  • Concepts and applications of modern surveying equipment
  • How to operate an electronic Total Station
  • How to create, use and share maps of different projections
  • Analysis of data using Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
