Electronic total station is an optical or electronic instrument, used in modern surveying & building construction. It is used in geotechnical monitoring such as building a structure like tunnels below the ground, and to provide a firm foundation above the ground. Its main functions are angle measurement, coordinate measurement, distance measurement, and data processing. It is widely used by civil engineers for topographical surveying. Its main applications are mining, mechanical & electrical construction, and meteorology. The key advantages are high accuracy of measurement, eliminates manual errors of reading & recording, speeds up field work, and provides accurate calculation of coordinates.
