How do you use a total station?

Answer

A total station is an instrument used to measure distance and location in surveying and archaeology. Set up the station by extending the tripod legs positioning it that the top is over the mark where you wish to work. Mount the instrument on the tripod using a plumb line to centre it adjusting it to get it over the mark. Shorten or lengthen each leg until the circular level is even. Adjust the two levelling screws to level the station until it is between the two lines. Turn the station a quarter and use the third screw to make the final adjustment. Turn it several times to ensure it stays level and centred in any direction.
