Book Description

Preference :
It is now more than 30 years since the publication of the first edition of Surveying for Engineers, and in that time the equipment and techniques used in engineering surveying have undergone incredible changes. Electronic theodolites and total stations, digital levels, laser scanners, and machine control systems, to name just a few, were all unheard of when the first edition was published in 1978, which by pure coincidence was the same year that the first GPS satellite was launched.

Since then the discipline into which engineering surveying falls has developed almost beyond recognition, having even been given a new identity with the name of Geomatics. There can be few disciplines that have changed so quickly and dramatically. Subsequent editions of Surveying for Engineers have always tried to reflect this evolution and this new fifth edition is no exception.
