It includes the determination of the measurement data, the reduction and interpretation of the data to usable form, and, conversely, the establishment of relative position and size according to given measurement requirements. Thus, surveying has two similar but opposite functions: 1 the determination of existing relative horizontal and vertical position, such as that used for the process of mapping , and 2 the establishment of marks to control construction or to indicate land boundaries.
Surveying has been an essential element in the development of the human environment for so many centuries that its importance is often forgotten.
It is an imperative requirement in the planning and execution of nearly every form of construction. Surveying was essential at the dawn of history, and some of the most significant scientific discoveries could never have been implemented were it not for the contribution of surveying. Its principal modern uses are in the fields of transportation , building , apportionment of land, and communications.
Except for minor details of technique and the use of one or two minor hand-held instruments, surveying is much the same throughout the world. Instruments made in Japan are similar to those made in the West. It is quite probable that surveying had its origin in ancient Egypt. The Great Pyramid of Khufu at Giza was built about bce , feet metres long and feet metres high. Evidence of some form of boundary surveying as early as bce has been found in the fertile valleys and plains of the Tigris, Euphrates, and Nile rivers.
Clay tablets of the Sumerians show records of land measurement and plans of cities and nearby agricultural areas.
Boundary stones marking land plots have been preserved. There is a representation of land measurement on the wall of a tomb at Thebes bce showing head and rear chainmen measuring a grainfield with what appears to be a rope with knots or marks at uniform intervals.
Other persons are shown. Two are of high estate, according to their clothing , probably a land overseer and an inspector of boundary stones. There is some evidence that, in addition to a marked cord, wooden rods were used by the Egyptians for distance measurement. There is no record of any angle-measuring instruments of that time, but there was a level consisting of a vertical wooden A-frame with a plumb bob supported at the peak of the A so that its cord hung past an indicator, or index, on the horizontal bar.
The index could be properly placed by standing the device on two supports at approximately the same elevation, marking the position of the cord, reversing the A, and making a similar mark. Halfway between the two marks would be the correct place for the index. Thus, with their simple devices, the ancient Egyptians were able to measure land areas, replace property corners lost when the Nile covered the markers with silt during floods, and build the huge pyramids to exact dimensions.
The Greeks used a form of log line for recording the distances run from point to point along the coast while making their slow voyages from the Indus to the Persian Gulf about bce. The magnetic compass was brought to the West by Arab traders in the 12th century ce. The astrolabe was introduced by the Greeks in the 2nd century bce.
An instrument for measuring the altitudes of stars, or their angle of elevation above the horizon, took the form of a graduated arc suspended from a hand-held cord. A pivoted pointer that moved over the graduations was pointed at the star.
The instrument was not used for nautical surveying for several centuries, remaining a scientific aid only. The Greeks also possibly originated the use of the groma, a device used to establish right angles, but Roman surveyors made it a standard tool. It was made of a horizontal wooden cross pivoted at the middle and supported from above.
From the end of each of the four arms hung a plumb bob. By sighting along each pair of plumb bob cords in turn, the right angle could be established. By shifting one of the cords to take up half the error, a perfect right angle would result. About 15 bce the Roman architect and engineer Vitruvius mounted a large wheel of known circumference in a small frame, in much the same fashion as the wheel is mounted on a wheelbarrow; when it was pushed along the ground by hand it automatically dropped a pebble into a container at each revolution, giving a measure of the distance traveled.
It was, in effect, the first odometer. The water level consisted of either a trough or a tube turned upward at the ends and filled with water. At each end there was a sight made of crossed horizontal and vertical slits. When these were lined up just above the water level, the sights determined a level line accurate enough to establish the grades of the Roman aqueducts.
In laying out their great road system, the Romans are said to have used the plane table. It consists of a drawing board mounted on a tripod or other stable support and of a straightedge—usually with sights for accurate aim the alidade to the objects to be mapped—along which lines are drawn.
It was the first device capable of recording or establishing angles. Later adaptations of the plane table had magnetic compasses attached. Plane tables were in use in Europe in the 16th century, and the principle of graphic triangulation and intersection was practiced by surveyors. In Willebrord Snell , a Dutch mathematician, measured an arc of meridian by instrumental triangulation. In the English mathematician Edmund Gunter developed a surveying chain, which was superseded only by the steel tape beginning in the late 19th century.
The study of astronomy resulted in the development of angle-reading devices that were based on arcs of large radii, making such instruments too large for field use.
With the publication of logarithmic tables in , portable angle-measuring instruments came into use. They were called topographic instruments, or theodolites. They included pivoted arms for sighting and could be used for measuring both horizontal and vertical angles. Magnetic compasses may have been included on some. The vernier , an auxiliary scale permitting more accurate readings , the micrometer microscope , telescopic sights , and spirit levels about were all incorporated in theodolites by about Stadia hairs were first applied by James Watt in The development of the circle-dividing engine about , a device for dividing a circle into degrees with great accuracy, brought one of the greatest advances in surveying methods, as it enabled angle measurements to be made with portable instruments far more accurately than had previously been possible.
Modern surveying can be said to have begun by the late 18th century. Many improvements and refinements have been incorporated in all the basic surveying instruments. These have resulted in increased accuracy and speed of operations and opened up possibilities for improved methods in the field.
In addition to modification of existing instruments, two revolutionary mapping and surveying changes were introduced: photogrammetry , or mapping from aerial photographs about , and electronic distance measurement, including the adoption of the laser for this purpose as well as for alignment in the s.
Important technological developments starting in the late 20th century include the use of satellites as reference points for geodetic surveys and electronic computers to speed the processing and recording of survey data.

The Surveying Handbook pp Cite as. The general subject of errors in measurement was discussed in Chapter 3, and the two classes of errors, systematic and random or accidental , were defined. It was noted that systematic errors follow physical laws, and that if the conditions producing them are measured, corrections to eliminate these can be computed and applied; however, random errors will still exist in all observed values.

Я отправил Дэвида в Испанию. ГЛАВА 11 Испания. Я отправил Дэвида в Испанию. Слова коммандера словно обожгли Сьюзан. - Дэвид в Испании? - Она не могла поверить услышанному. - Вы отправили его в Испанию? - В ее голосе послышались сердитые нотки. - Зачем.
Уверяю вас, он стоит этих денег. Тут все без обмана. Он стоит десять раз по двадцать миллионов.
- Прости, не мог позвонить раньше, - успел сказать. Подумал, не рассказать ли ей. Но решил этого не делать. - Позвони коммандеру. Он тебе все объяснит.
Стратмор был поражен до глубины души. Никто никогда не позволял себе говорить с заместителем директора АНБ в таком тоне. - Сьюзан, - проговорил он, стараясь сдержать раздражение, - в этом как раз все. Мне было нужно… Но тигрица уже изготовилась к прыжку.
