Overview

Known for its state-of-the-art coverage and clear, concise approach, Surveying with Construction Applications, Seventh Edition covers the latest advances and foundational principles of surveying. Emphasizing instrumentation technology, field data capture, and data-processing techniques, this text highlights real-world applications of surveying to the construction and engineering fields. Ideal as a reference in the field, additional complexities in electronic distance measurement and the order of presentation of surveying topics have been revised in this edition. All state Departments of Transportation (DOTs) in the U.S. and the provincial Transportation/Highways Departments in Canada conduct extensive training sessions for their large staffs. This book covers topics that are taught in these training sessions, in addition to all of the introductory topics needed for survey training.

PREFACE:

Preface

There have been many technological advances in surveying since Surveying with Construction Applications was first published. This fourth edition is up to date, with the latest in advances in instrumentation technology, field data capture, and data-processing techniques. Although surveying is becoming much more efficient and automated, the need for a clear understanding of the principles underlying all forms of survey measurement remains unchanged.

Accordingly, the general surveying principles and techniques used in all branches of surveying are presented in Chapters 1 to 9, while contemporary applications for the construction of most civil projects are covered in Chapters 10 to 16. In this way, not only is the text useful for the student, but also it can be used as ready reference for the graduate who may choose a career in civil design or construction. The glossary has been expanded to include new terminology.

Every effort has been made to remain on the leading edge of new developments in techniques and instrumentation, while maintaining complete coverage of traditional techniques and instrumentation. This edition features a completely revised and expanded chapter on Global Positioning System (GPS); this technology is rapidly replacing the more traditional techniques in positioning—affecting the way we perform control surveys, preliminary surveys, and especially construction layout surveys. New topics include point positioning and differential positioning using both code measurements and carrier phase measurements, continuously operating reference stations (CORS), real-time measurements, field techniques, andvertical positioning.

Although some of the older instruments (e.g., vernier transits, dumpy levels) are still in use in some college programs, they have been deemphasized in this edition—recognizing that technological advances have been so rapid that most new equipment now being purchased has been on the market for only a year or two.

The author, in addition to streamlining existing text matter, has included new material on electronic surveying in the areas of field coding, automatic target recognition, guide lights for the prism holder, typical field operations, and remote-controlled surveying. Chapter 7 covers the preelectronic surveying techniques for topographic surveying, whereas Chapter 5 covers the modern and more efficient field practices in electronic surveying.

With the conversion to metric practice now well underway in many U.S. federal and state projects, this text will be of particular value, as it continues to fully prepare surveying student for their careers in both imperial and metric practice.

In Appendix B, the reader will note a comprehensive list of Internet web sites for a wide variety of surveying activities.

Finally, in Appendix D, the author has included a broad selection of typical field projects designed to both complement and expand on the text presentation.

The surveying practitioner now has to struggle to keep up with the amazing explosion of technology advances; it is the author's hope that students using this text will be completely up to date in this subject area as they continue with further education or as they seek employment in this rewarding field.
