Surveying is an important part of all undergraduate and higher diploma courses in civil engineering and building. This textbook covers a wider range of topics than most other surveying texts, and deals not only with control surveying techniques and equipment but also with setting out practice. The methods described are geared to modern equipment and processes. However, the book emphasises the need to appreciate practical site problems as well as the implications of the latest electronic methods of field work and data handling. The new edition takes into account developments in equipment since 1988.
