For all surveying courses in programs including civil engineering; civil engineering technology; survey engineering; resources engineering and technology, agricultural engineering, and forestry. This text may be used to teach surveying and advanced surveying in two-year, three-year, and four-year college/university programs; and as a reference for graduates early in their careers.

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 an even more useful reference for students entering the workplace.
