Publisher Comments:

For professionals in agricultural mechanics, agricultural engineering or technology, it is also useful in landscape architecture and forestry programs as well as a reference for secondary agricultural instructors, this book presents the fundamentals of surveying. The principles and methods of surveying are used by many occupations ranging from simple, visual determination of a difference in elevation to more complex use of topographic maps, property boundaries, and the more precise measuring of distances and angles without assuming advanced math or engineering skills. This book helps readers determine which method is most suitable to a variety of projects.

Book News Annotation:

Examines the basic principles and practices involved in land surveying using non-engineering terms, abundant illustrations, and practical examples. Suitable both as a classroom text for instructing the practical applications of surveying and for the individual who wishes to learn on her own how to measure distance; complete differential, profile, and topographic surveys; and measure horizontal angles without the requirement of a degree in engineering.
