This edition has some changes in the order of chapters. Reflecting the additional complexities in electronic distance measurement, the order of presentation of surveying topics has been revised as follows: The leveling chapter has been moved forward to Chapter 2, allowing instructors to

introduce the simpler instruments before the more complex total stations; distance measurement has been moved to Chapter 3; total stations have been combined with electronic theodolites in Chapter 4 (optical theodolites have been moved to Appendix G); and satellite positioning has been revised and moved up in the presentation order to Chapter 7.

Revision to the text and the addition of new material have been focused on the chapters describing topics where the technology and applications are still evolving. Revised text and new material are included in the following: Chapter 5, Total Stations—where the introduction has been re-written and the topics on combined total station/GPS instruments and ground-based lidar imaging have been revised and/or added; and Chapter 7—where the introductory topics were revised and the topics on wide area augmentation, CORS, OPUS, and real-time GPS networks were expanded. End-of-chapter problems have been expanded and refreshed.

The websites given in selected chapters and in Appendix B have been updated and verified. As with the earlier editions of this text, material here is presented in a clear and logical fashion, a style that reflects the many years of surveying field experience and classroom instruction
