Land Surveying

With over 50 years of experience working with land surveyors, we have grown with the industry and consequently developed a thorough understanding of surveyors’ workflows along with the importance of data integration, the new collaborative requirements between the field and the office and of course the business decisions that need to be addressed before a major purchase.

However, what really sets KOREC apart is the technical support with which we back up all our Trimble instrumentation. Local, fast and knowledgeable, our support team matches our sales team in number with KOREC customers citing this high level of support as a key factor in their purchasing decisions.

A total station is an optical instrument used for measuring angles and distance by surveyors. A total station typically consists of a theodolite and an electronic distance metre (EDM) to measure the slope between itself and a specific point as well as vertical and horizonal angles.
A total station can measure either to a target or prism or be reflectorless measuring to any object that is reasonably light in colour. Depending on the technology involved they can be robotic (The Trimble S Series) especially suitable for construction (Trimble RTS instruments) or mechanical (for example the Trimble M3). Trimble was also the developer of the Trimble SX10 a combined high accuracy total station and 3D laser scanner.

The modern surveyor uses a range of tools for their surveying workflow, both out on site and back in the office. These range from high accuracy total stations for measuring angles and distances, and GNSS systems for accurate point positioning, compact and versatile data collectors such as the TSC7 or the TDC600 for data input and positioning, through to office software such as Trimble Business Center (TBC).
An increasing number of geospatial survey professionals are adding laser scanning solutions to portfolio, allowing them to undertake 3D scanned surveys of buildings and other infrastructure such as highways, rail, tunnels and more. In order to increase workflow efficiencies, surveyors are also utilising drone or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to carry out surveys over large areas of ground in the minimum of time, or to survey difficult to access or restricted areas, such as remote locations or over built up areas.
