This project aims at creating an application that allows the download of data from total station devices, a task which is usually done by proprietary, dedicated and Windows-only software.
This project was started within grupporicerche as part of the IOSA project for making it easier to manage different models of total stations, often used in the same fieldwork unit, mainly in a GNU/Linux environment. However, trying to develop following standards, porting to Windows or Mac shouldn’t be difficult.
Every model has its own quirks. So, we use a modular structure, that is based on an abstract interface. Each time a new model is added to the program, you create a new instance of this base class, with all the needed data.
