Summary

This state-of-the-art exploration of the theory and applications of geometrics recognizes the expansion and advances in the field and the broadening of the allied disciplines that have a direct interest in the newest technological approaches to geo-data collection, processing, analysis, management, and presentation. Exceptionally well-written by a teacher/surveyor manager with many years of experience, it provides a comprehensive insider's view of what's important, what works, and how it all fits together. Divided into three parts--Fundamentals, Remote Sensing, and Engineering Applications--it covers both traditional topics in surveying and the more recently developed topics in geographic information systems (GIS), global positioning (GPS) and airborne imagery, together with satellite imagery (remote sensing)--all with a focus on applications of interest to the fields of in civil, surveying, and geological engineering, physical geography, environmental, natural resources, etc. Features an appendix of 11 field projects involving the fundamentals of taping, leveling, and angle acquisition, and applications in data gathering, stake-outs for buildings, curves, and pipelines. An Introduction to Geometrics. Distance Measurement--Taping. Electronic Distance Measurement (EDM). Leveling. Angles and Directions. Transits/Theodolites. Traverse Surveys. Electronic Surveying Measurements. Topographic Surveying and Mapping. Geogramic Information Systems (GIS). Global Positioning Systems (GPS). Control Surveys. Land Surveying. Airborne Imagery. Satellite Imagery. Highway Curves. Construction Surveying. For anyone interested in the state-of-the-art theory and applications of Geomatics/Surveying.
