I am an instructor here in the UK and I'm in the process of writing a book on setting out. Your help would be very much appreciated.
I use Leica and Topcon for training young engineers. I'm looking for your help with some terminology for functions in other types of total station.....
In the Leica (TS06 and TS09), the mode for setting out by co-ordinates was until recently called 'stake out'. The most recent software calls it 'set out' (here in the UK).
In a Topcon it is 'layout'.
Can you tell me what this same mode is called in:
Thanks in anticipation.

This is great Billy. What a great resource. Thanks!
I have a good friend here at this site,his name is Johnny Ingram. He has taught surveying for many years.
We both live in Texas and he has a Museum and a site for it. He also has some slide shows posted on the SHS (Surveyors Historical Society) site.
His museum is the Museum of Measurement and Time you can take a Virtual Tour of it I think you will like to see it also his slides shown at SHS this would also be good material for your class.
This is great thanks Billy! I don't know of anything like that here in the UK!
For TOPCON and SOKKIA
ES and CX series models use " S - O" for setting out
Brilliant, thanks Mohomed!
