Surveying & LocatioN Equipment Hire FAQs

Your Questions, Answered.

A total station is a surveying instrument that combines a theodolite for angle measurement and a distance meter. It is used to measure angles, distances, and coordinates, allowing precise positioning and mapping of points on a construction site.

GPS equipment uses satellite signals to determine accurate positioning on the Earth's surface. In surveying, GPS receivers are used to collect data on coordinates and establish control points for mapping and geospatial applications.

A laser scanner is a device that emits laser beams and captures the reflected data to create detailed 3D representations of surfaces and objects. Laser scanners are used in surveying for creating accurate and comprehensive point cloud data for building information modelling (BIM) and site documentation.

Theodolites are precision optical instruments used to measure horizontal and vertical angles. They are commonly used for tasks such as triangulation, traversing, and setting out points in construction and land surveying projects.
