Description

Engineering Surveying: Theory and Examination Problems for Students, Volume 2, Second Edition tackles the advance concepts in engineering survey. The first chapter covers the study of errors in surveying observations; the effect of their combination and propagation; and the various procedures used to produce a statistically viable result. Chapter 2 deals with various topics relevant to the basic methodology of position fixing. Chapter 3 discusses the principles of aerial and terrestrial photogrammetry. The last chapter covers the application of field astronomy to position fixing. The book will be useful to both students and practitioners of civil engineering.
