Using Revit instead of Civil 3D for survey purposes

Is it possible to use Revit to creat a topo from a total station using a CSV file from excell?? I would like to know if you would be able to use the points along with the labels created by the total station and imnport them into revit and give the contour major and minor lines similar to AutoCAD Civil 3D.


Any direction on the topic would be greatly apprecieated.  I just started to used the total station and I'm new to that topic.

Revit can generate a toposurface from a points file. You can find additional details here to help decide if this is the way you want to go.
