This page is for disseminating information for using Total Stations in geological field work. It includes instructions for surveying procedures, as well as field sheets and software developed here at Portland State University. The material is designed to support the use of the equipment at PSU.
The National Science Foundation (NSF DUE-96-50263) assisted Portland State University in purchasing a series of six Total Stations for use in undergraduate courses and for graduate research. The equipment purchase was supported by NSF, Department of Geology, Office for Graduate Studies and Sponsored Research, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and the School of Engineering. We also wish to acknowledge Sokkia Corporation for a discount on the equipment. Details of the equipment are given below in the link "Available equipment".
