From the reviews:

  • ‘... substantial, informative, comprehensive, useful, nicely presented, even enjoyable, and a prospective text-book on the parts of geodesy which are most relevant to the surveyor...’ AZIMUTH

  • '...is expertly crafted, to appeal to both the geodesist and the cartographer. ... It acts both as a book to dip into to confirm points and operations, and an extensive textbook which can be read and absorbed from beginning to end. It is highly recommended.' SoC Bulletin
