Total Open Station

Travis PyPI Read the Docs Matrix

Total Open Station is a program for downloading and processing survey data from total station devices.

Total Open Station is a good choice if:

  • you work with total stations on GNU/Linux (and MacOS, probably)
  • you work with old devices that are unsupported by vendors
  • you need to process hundreds of data files at once

We think Total Open Station is small but great because:

  • it is free/libre open source software
  • it works on any operating system where Python is available
  • it is designed to support as many devices and formats as possible, all within the same program, opposed to having one program per device
  • it works both on the command line and with a graphical interface

Total Open Station uses a modular structure and keeps the downloading of data logically separated from its processing, thus enabling exporting data to a variety of output formats, even at a later moment. Archiving of raw data is made easy by using plain text files.


If you're comfortable with the command line:

pip install totalopenstation

Windows users can download the portable app from the GitHub releases page.

GNU/Linux users can find the totalopenstation package in some distributions (OpenSUSE, Debian, Ubuntu). Make sure that python3-tk or python3-tkinter is installed on your system, otherwise install it with your package manager (apt, dnf, pacman).


Documentation is online at with an user guide, details on the application structure, supported models and other interesting stuff.


Total Open Station is developed by @steko, @psolyca and other contributors, including translators and providers of sample data. We are not professional software developers but we do our best to follow modern good practice. Feel free to submit a feature request or a pull request on GitHub.
