Parallax error occurs in theodolites when the line of sight between the telescope and the graduated circle is not perpendicular. This creates a difference in the angle measured by the telescope’s crosshairs and the true angle displayed on the graduated circle. Parallax error usually results in an overestimation of the angle, causing inaccurate measurements and readings.
