The Gyrotheodolite is an expensive and specialist piece of surveying equipment. It takes considerable time to become experienced and competent in its operation. Most surveyors do not have access to Gyrotheodolites and yet, when they have to use them will spend much time becoming proficient, prior to becoming productive.
Some educators and trainers who have the Gyrotheodolite on their syllabuses may not be able to give their students first hand experience. Those that are lucky enough to have access to a Gyrotheodolite will find that it is very difficult to give all the students in their class sufficient individual access to the instrument.
The video "Gyrotheodolite Measurements", gives the viewer the nearest thing to hands on experience that is possible with a video. The video explains in full detail the processes of operation, observation and computation associated with the determination of the bearing between 2 stations. The gyro used in the video is a Wild GAK1.
The video is in 2 parts.
The approximate video running time is 114 minutes
Each video comes with a set of support material including blank and completed field sheets. You may copy the documentation, but not the video, as you require for your own teaching and learning purposes.
