The fifth edition of this classic textbook sets out the essential techniques needed for a solid grounding in the surveying.

The popular and trusted textbook covers the traditional topics such as levelling, measurement of angles, measuring distances, and how to carry out traversing and compute coordinates, as well as the latest technological advances.   It is packed with clear illustrations, exercises and worked examples, making it both a comprehensive study aid for students and a reliable reference tool for practitioners.

This text is aimed at students studying surveying as either part of a civil engineering, building or construction course or as a separate discipline.  It is also useful for students who undertake surveying as an elective subject and is a useful resource for practising surveyors.
