Topography at Tell Mozan

Dr Hans Barnard (Cotsen Institute of Archaeology, UCLA) explains how a Total Station is set up and the way in which the instrument calculates the x and y coordinates, as well as the elevation (z) of an unknown point on site with one single measurement. Dr Barnard also discusses the advantages and disadvantages of using a Total Station in archaeological fieldwork (description by Vera Rondano).
