Total stations can take snapshots of worksites and survey layouts. Now Topcon has added a video functionality to it’s line of direct aiming total stations.
The DS-200i provides real time, touch screen video and photo imaging to captured and measured positions. The video allows for non-prism measurements to be aimed and measured to remote objects. This saves time by eliminating the need to return to the tripod while still allowing a remote user to know exactly what he is measuring.
