Comparison table of almost 50 total stations

GeoInformatics has surprised us this month with an edition in which 49 shows different total stations in a comparative table that can be very useful for those who need to make a decision at the time of a purchase, as well as to follow the track to a model that has Been evolving in a couple of years.

Some of these brands are somewhat rare due to their low penetration in the Hispanic market and also because of their novelty or because more than one name has changed. From the historical Review of 4 years ago Appears Leica of which survives the name Flexline and the representative of Europe where it is its origin, Nikon and SPECTRA appear although they are now Owned by Trimble that in the previous table did not appear with their own equipment. Those resistant to mergers, Topcon and Sokkia (Property of Topcon) of Asian origin, which by the way have had a lot of penetration in the Latin American market. FOIF and PENTAX uphold the nomenclature there by adding.

And the absent ones in the table: CST / Berger, SOUTH that now figures very close to KOLIDA.

Below we list the equipment considered and the year of introduction, although we suggest you save the pdf edition because it is for collection.

  1. Hi July.
    I have forwarded your request to a representative of Geo Allen who distributes equipment in Peru.
    Tell him to apply the discount of Z! Coupons with Geofumadas_CT code, and it sure is worth it.
