Various techniques of levelling, angular observation and distance measurement, at different degrees of precision with a variety of instruments, are examined and compared. The associated reductions and computations are also dealt with.
1. To be aware of a range of surveying instrumentation, both present and past.
2. To know what applications these instruments have.
3. To know what precision can be achieved by a variety of instruments and techniques.
4. To know how to use the instruments.
5. To be able to reduce raw observational data from the instruments to a usable form.
6. To be able to analyse the results obtained and portray them in a cogent manner.
