Availability: In stock

This handbook provides a thorough understanding of the principles of modern geospatial surveying techniques and replaces the author’s highly successful Practical Surveying and Computations. It has been completely recast to accord with modern practices of geospatial surveying. Since most practical work is carried out by prescribed systems and processed by software packages, the book concentrates on those essential principles which the user needs to know.The mathematical treatment relates directly to those topics found in the author’s successful textbook, Maths for Map Makers.

Contents:  Introduction to geospatial surveying; Technical procedures; Coordinate systems; Coordinate transformations; Theory of errors and quality control; Least squares estimation; Satellite surveying; Survey computations; Heights and levels; Maps and map data processing; Construction and curves; Industrial and engineering surveying; Instrumentation. Appendices: Useful data; Spherical trigonometry; General least squares; The Earth ellipsoid; Survey control for photogrammetric mapping; Quality control; Field astronomy; Survey projections; Satellite surveying; References
