theodolite

A theodolite is an instrument used for measuring horizontal and vertical angles.

The main components telescope and graduated circle are still clearly noticeable in earlier theodolites. In this case, the angles are read and entered in a form.
Electronic tacheometers are modern instruments for measuring angles. Here, the measured values are registered automatically and analysed by the computer.
