This vintage work contains a series of examples of astronomic and geodetic calculations used by land surveyoys. Written in simple, concise language and containing a plethora of useful tables, charts, and equations, this text, although old, will be of much utility to the modern reader with an interest in the subject, and would make for a great addition to Author: Edouard Deville.

In almost all countries, the duties of a Land Surveyor consist only of laying out and dividing land ; geodetic surveying belongs to the business of the civil and mili- tary engineer corps, composed of men w^ho have mastered the highest branches of science.

Geodetic astronomy, on the other hand, is described as [Mueller, ] the art and science for determining, by astronomical observations, the positions of points on the earth and the azimuths of the geodetic lines connecting such points.

When referring to its use in surveying, the terms practical or positional astronomy are often used. Edouard Gaston Deville has written: 'Examples of astronomic and geodetic calculations for the use of land surveyors' -- subject(s): Accessible book, Surveying 'Photographic surveying'.

Jerry McGray has been a managing principal of McGray & McGray Land Surveyors for 20 years, including nine years as GPS project manager.

He conducts seminars on and has authored dozens of articles about GPS and geodetic surveying. He also acts as POB's editorial director and serves on POB's Editorial Advisory Board. In the U.S., the National Geodetic Survey (NGS) maintains a National Spatial Reference System (NSRS) that consists of approximatelyhorizontal andvertical control stations (Doyle,).

Coordinates associated with horizontal control points are referenced to NAD 83; elevations are relative to NAVD Please notice the astronomical coordinates of a station in the illustration.

This is an actual station called Youghall in North America. The astronomic coordinates of that station, 40 degrees, 25 minutes, seconds, differ from the geodetic coordinate, the latitude in that case being 40 degrees, 25 minutes. ALL the (legitimate) versions of north are true, in that they are are some examples.

- Astronomic North - the direction toward the center of rotation of the celestial sphere in the northern hemisphere.

- Geodetic North - the direction of the meridian line through the point in question. added to an astronomic azimuth, yields a geodetic azimuth, it is known as the Laplace correction. It is important to note that NGS uses a clockwise rotation regarding the Laplace correction. The ellipsoid height per the NAD83 ellipsoid is shown followed by the geoid height where the position is covered by NGS’s GEOID Size: KB.

Basic Surveying - Theory and Practice. Suppose the distance to be measured is an exact multiple (n) of 10 m.

The optical path however, will be 2n x 10 m (this is the double distance). As the total path is 2n x 10 m, the total phase delay is n x °.File Size: 1MB.

Surveyors typically measure positions in series.

Starting at control points, they measure angles and distances to new locations, and use trigonometry to calculate positions in a plane coordinate system.

Measuring a series of positions in this way is known as "running a traverse.". CONTENTS Preface xi Acknowledgments xiii How to Use This Book xv Chapter 1.

From to the adoption of NAD83 inazimuths in geodetic surveys were reckoned from the south, clockwise, rather than from the more logical origin, north, used by land surveyors. Walter D. Lambert in a short article and some notes compiled in gave several explanations, any of which could suffice as a good reason for the practice.

Many surveyors use coordinates based upon the state plane system or use a datum specifically tailored to the individual job. If your plat has NAD83 coordinates then you can change them over to UTM's to use with a Gps. I think every surveyor needs to do this,if it is just for the fun or experience of doing it,a lot of old Deeds, even today have yesterday bearings,magnetic bearings or Declinations where once used not to long ago, a surveyor should be on guard, when taking Bearing from plats or old Deeds, Astronomic azimuth were and are used in some cases for Geodetic surveys.

Azimuths may be geodetic, astronomic,magnetic, grid, record, or assumed, depending on the reference meridian avoid any confusion, it is necessary to state in the field notes, at the beginning of work, what reference meridian applies for azimuths, and whether they are observed from north or south.

Example illustrates, that theodolite is high precise instrument. For measuring angles we can not expect that holding a rod on target point (as in case of leveling) is sufficient.

We have to use plumb-bob with visible line to allow clear reading. Land surveyors use specialized instruments to measure angles and distances, from which they calculate horizontal and vertical positions.

The Global Positioning System (and to a potentially greater extent, the emerging Global Navigation Satellite System) enables both surveyors and ordinary citizens to determine positions by measuring distances Author: David DiBiase.

Or any star, really, but Polaris is most common. Then, from the published ephemeris data and knowing the time that the surveyors took the shots, you can calculate a deviation of the north star from true north, and then adjust the survey by that much.

Isn't this how Astro bearings are derived. Disclaimer: I'm not a Land Surveyor.

The basis-of-bearing on this plat is true north with respect to the longitudinal meridian through “a be needed to distinguish between “astronomic” and “geodetic” directions on such surveys.

The > others said that true north was different from geodetic north (by a few > seconds in his area - North Alabama). land surveyors means Astronomic North. For. Magnetic Surveying in Archaeology - book - was created in The text book definition of surveying is "The art and science of measuring angles and distances on or near the surface of the earth." When the term land is added, it.

It is not uncommon for surveyors to use adjoining Geodetic North is defined by the mean rotational axis of the earth. This directional basis is on the astronomic meridian, and thus defines astronomic north. The accuracy of this method in defining astronomic north is approximately ±30' of Size: KB.

Surveying or land surveying is the technique, profession, art and science of determining the terrestrial or three-dimensional positions of points and the distances and angles between them. A land surveying professional is called a land points are usually on the surface of the Earth, and they are often used to establish maps and boundaries for ownership, locations.

A data book is a ready reckoner of formulae of geometrical properties of various shapes used in quantity surveying. It also gives equations used in the calculation.
