This practical handbook compiles essential information on state-of-the-art technology, standards, resources, legal issues, and office management of professional surveying. It provides a convenient one-volume reference on all aspects of the subject. The book begins with introductory chapters reviewing field notes and data collection, measurement accuracy, instruments and drafting. This provides the basis for coverage of all the surveying procedures currently in use, including such recently developed methods as geographic information systems (GIS) and global position system surveying (GPS), as well as established techniques such as plane table and compass surveying. This second edition is extensively revised and expanded. In addition to new coverage of GIS and GPS, the book features new chapters on boundary surveys on land and along waterways. All the chapter authors are recognized experts in their subject areas, assuring users that the information presented is reliable, accurate, and practical. This book should serve as a professional reference aimed at professional contractors and structural engineers; land developers in the public and private sector; and surveyors.
