    For all surveying courses in programs including civil engineering civil engineering technology survey engineering resources engineering and technology, agricultural engineering, and forestry.


    This 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."

    Salient Features

    "Easy to read, user-friendly approach. Gives students the clearest presentation available, supporting easy-to-read text with clear illustrations and realistic examples.


    Brings together coverage of all the subjects students need to master, from traditional surveying to cutting edge technologies. Covers everything from traditional highway geometrics, and construction surveying to state-of-the-art GIS, satellite imaging, and other innovations.


    Helps students clearly understand the connections between theory and real-world applications. Reflects the authors' extensive real-world experience, illuminating the ways modern surveying is actually performed in a wide variety of environments.


    Focuses on student success throughout. Provides proven pedagogical tools including chapter questions, problems, worked examples, and many current weblinks for further exploration.


    Gives students easy access to all the terminology and definitions they need. Contains a complete and accessible glossary: a feature rarely included in surveying texts.


    Provides reference material students can use throughout their careers. Includes appendices covering random errors, trigonometric definitions and identities, weblinks, typical field projects, a color photo gallery, and more.


    Simplifies conversion between English and metric units, preparing students to work with either, or both. Provides both English and Metric units in all examples and problems."
