From the Back Cover:

Elementary Surveying has been the best selling surveying text for many years. The authors continue to focus on the text's readability and clear presentation of basic concepts and practical material in each of the areas fundamental to the practice of surveying (geomatics). Although the book is elementary, its depth and breadth have made it suitable for self study, and for use as a reference by those engaged in the practice of surveying and its related disciplines such as civil engineering, forestry, geography, geology, landscape architecture, and others. As with past editions, this text continues to emphasize the presence of errors in surveying, while practical suggestions resulting from the authors' many years of experience are interjected throughout the book.

This tenth edition of Elementary Surveying (An Introduction to Geomatics) has been substantially updated and modified to reflect the rapidly changing nature of surveying (geomatics). Many additions and changes have been made to keep this the most up-to-date textbook available in surveying.

New to the tenth edition:

  • Expansion of GPS coverage into two chapters.
  • Contains an in-depth treatment of the subject in both the theory of GPS and field and office procedures in GPS.
  • Relevant website links given throughout the book.
  • Enables students to self-explore topics discussed in the book and obtain the latest material on surveying standards.
  • New Wolfpack CD included with the book.
  • Contains computer programs for solving the different types of surveying problems, and includes help files as well as sample data files.
  • Modernized discussions and graphics.
  • Describes the new instruments currently being used in industry, introductory geodetic calculations, coordinate geometry, new state plane coordinate computation procedures, etc.
  • Every chapter contains a new set of problems, and a revised and updated bibliography.

From the Back Cover:

This best-selling, highly readable introduction to surveying contains basic theory and practical material both for field and office work. Chapters are arranged in a logical and progressive order, with earlier chapters covering fundamentals suitable for a first course in surveying, and later chapters taking on advanced topics appropriate for a second course. Coverage includes the theory of errors and correlations of theory and practical field methods, as well as a review of traditional equipment such as tapes, levels, and theodolites. The ninth edition is completely in sync with new technology, and features a new chapter on the Geographic Information Systems (GISs); a rewritten chapter on state plane coordinates that accommodates changes resulting from NAD83; and updated and expanded coverage of total stations, automatic data collectors and the Global Positioning System (GPS). More than 900 end-of-chapter problems, updated in this edition, reinforce the text's message.
