It reads slope distance from the instrument to any particular spot and also it measure angles.Total station must be levelled and then centered over a central point in the same way as for a theodolite as before this must be done correctly in order to for the instrument to give correct results . Having set up the total station it has to be oriented horizontally to the site coordinates system and it may also have to be oriented vertically .an adjancent control point is the chosen as a reference point .
