Rapid advances in digital camera technology, real-time satellite differential global positioning systems, and digital imaging from airborne platforms have yielded new opportunities for on-the-fly, in situ digital mapping when used in conjunction with state-of-the-art digital photogrammetric workstations. Written by active participants in the promotion of airborne digital mapping systems, Digital Aerial Survey: Theory and Practice is a comprehensive manual that examines the systems available for data capture and photogrammetric processing. Starting from first principles it develops a solid foundation in digital imaging technology and aerial survey practices. It covers the very lastest digital air cameras, critically analyzes their performance, and addresses all aspects of airborne operation, from the aircraft and GPS navigation to survey flight planning. The text includes a CD-ROM that provides Excel files that calculate mission/ photographic parameters to make the planning of an actual survey straightforward. Digital Aerial Survey: Theory and Practice provides the opportunity to appreciate, understand, and apply photo-interpretation, reconnaissance, and photomapping techniques to a variety of planning, resource harvesting, pollution prevention, civil engineering, and disaster mitigation activities.

SURVEYING: PRINCIPLES & APPLICATIONS, 9/e is the clearest, easiest to understand, and most useful introduction to surveying as it is practiced today. It brings together expert coverage of surveying principles, remote sensing and other new advances in technological instrumentation, and modern applications for everything from mapping to engineering. Designed for maximum simplicity, it also covers sophisticated topics typically discussed in advanced surveying courses. This edition has been reorganized and streamlined to align tightly with current surveying practice, and to teach more rapidly and efficiently. It adds broader and more valuable coverage of aerial, space and ground imaging, GIS, land surveying, and other key topics. An extensive set of appendices makes it a useful reference for students entering the workplace.

A comprehensive overview of high precision surveying, including recent developments in geomatics and their applications This book covers advanced precision surveying techniques, their proper use in engineering and geoscience projects, and their importance in the detailed analysis and evaluation of surveying projects. The early chapters review the fundamentals of precision surveying: the types of surveys; survey observations; standards and specifications; and accuracy assessments for angle, distance and position difference measurement systems. The book also covers network design and 3-D coordinating systems before discussing specialized topics such as structural and ground deformation monitoring techniques and analysis, mining surveys, tunneling surveys, and alignment surveys. Precision Surveying: The Principles and Geomatics Practice: Covers structural and ground deformation monitoring analysis, advanced techniques in mining and tunneling surveys, and high precision alignment of engineering structures Discusses the standards and specifications available for geomatics projects, including their representations, interpretations, relationships with quality assurance/quality control measures, and their use in geomatics projects Describes network design and simulation, including error analysis and budgeting Explains the main properties of high-precision surveys with regard to basic survey procedures and different traditional measurement techniques Analyzes survey observables such as angle, distance, elevation difference and coordinate difference measurements, and the relevant equipment, including the testing and utilization of the equipment Provides several case studies and real world examples Precision Surveying: The Principles and Geomatics Practice is written for upper undergraduate students and graduate students in the fields of surveying and geomatics. This textbook is also a resource for geomatics researchers, geomatics software developers, and practicing surveyors and engineers interested in precision surveys.

This is a book about boundary surveying. It is written for anyone who is interested in how surveys are performed. The book would also be useful for land surveying students who are interested in developing an overall view of how land surveyors go about surveying a parcel of land. This book will provide the reader with a background on boundary surveying techniques and some of the common legal issues which govern boundary establishment. A primary purpose of this book is to acquaint people who are not land surveyors with the principles used by land surveyors to establish boundary lines. The information in this book will be useful to home owners, real estate agents, attorneys, engineers, city planners, building officials, students, bankers, title researchers, GIS practitioners and others. I hope this book will be an important resource for those who have questions relating to boundaries and land surveying in general.

Ground Penetrating Radar: Theory and Practice is a practical guide to using this powerful underground surveying technique. The author uses her wide experience to explain the critical factors in using GPR and how parameters, such as wavelength, attenuation and loss need to be properly considered to obtain good survey results. The first chapter introduces the underlying physics and explains the formation of signal patterning. The next two chapters explain the significance of wavelengths for target detection, probing depths and resolution, and demonstrating the variety of signal presentation. Chapter four discusses why survey results are affected by water and air in the soil, and how this may affect depth readings. Additional chapters discuss a variety of methods for velocity calibration and suggests where they may be useful, challenging soil conditions and potential problem environments, data processing and a suite of useful techniques, amongst other important topics. The book gives a clear and formative guidance on understanding the critical factors in using GPR, as well as a checklist of surveying considerations. Covers the critical, practical factors in using a ground penetrating radar, including troubleshooting appropriate equipment selection Explains why wavelengths matter, providing practice calculations Offers insight into how to spot ringing (echo effects) and air signals, and how to distinguish these from subsurface data Enables the reader to understand the importance of calibration of transmission velocity and a range of methodsa

The survey and the transference are the distinctive and operative acts in the transmission of real property and, where they differ from each other, one must of necessity control the other. This book addresses the aforementioned concepts by external explanations in order to understand the discrepancies between them. It also helps to avoid expensive and wasteful litigation over boundaries that were previously not in conflict. The text offers an extensive review of the law for boundary retracement and cites numerous case examples.
