This Apps helps Land Surveyors and Civil Engineers to measure and collect topography survey data by connecting users Android phone/tablet to a total station by using bluetooth or a usb-serial adapter cable.
This Apps can use the total station to measure horizontal and vertical angle, horizontal and vertical distance and setting horizontal angle on the total station.
Please use the free version, 'Total Station Survey' to test the connectivity with the total station.

1. Using Bluetooth.
Select "Connect to Bluetooth Total Station" on the option menu to pair with a bluetooth enable total station. The 'set Horz.Angle' and Measure Buttons will be enable for measurement.

Lastly connects a serial cable from the total station to the Usb-Serial Adapter, this cable is supplied by the total station manufacturer. Select from the option menu 'Connect Usb-Serial Adapter'.
Use the 'Measure' button to to measure in HA or SD Mode. Pressing 'Save' in the measure dialog will save measure data to the main screen. Measurement in HD/SD mode can be use for Area calculation.
Use the 'Area' button for area calculation. Key in station number delimited by comma. Area is calculated based on coordinates calculated by using bearing and distance measured in SD Mode. Coordinate will be computed indirectly if there is no direct measurements.
Use the 'Export' on the options menu to save the measurement data to Topcon's gts6 or csv format file.
Supported Total Station:
1. Topcon. including Topcon-Sokkia and Topcon-Gowin.
