This Volume Is One Of The Two Which Offer A Comprehensive Course In Those Parts Of Theory And Practice Of Plane And Geodetic Surveying That Are Most Commonly Used By Civil Engineers. The First Volume Covers In 24 Chapters, The Most Common Surveying Operations. Each Topic Introduced Is Thoroughly Described, The Theory Is Rigorously Developed, And A Large Number Of Numerical Examples Are Included To Illustrate Its Application. General Statements Of Important Principles And Methods Are Almost Invariably Given By Practical Illustration. Apart From Illustrations Of Old And Conventional Instruments, Emphasis Has Been Placed On New Or Modern Instruments, Both For Ordinary As Well As Precise Work. A Good Deal Of Space Has Been Given To Instrumental Adjustments With Thorough Discussion Of Geometrical Principles In Each Case. Many New Advanced Problems Have Also Been Added Which Will Prove Useful For Competitive Examinations.
