Here is my videos on the same topic. My English pronunciation is not good; therefore, it can be troublesome to listen it but the stuff I present is very important; so, it may be of some value to look into them. Some material is difficult and requires substantial math training but despite of this it can be useful for all interested in this area. First of all, it helps to understand the possibilities and opportunities opened through mastering some topographic surveying methods. Beside it, almost every person without strong math background could be trained to use total station (I personally have trained a few people that have no understanding of underlying theory). And with total station you can do all stuff that is described in this set of videos. Therefore, you don’t need to master everything that is described in there, but to assess the potential of this field of applied science.
