An algorithm for improving the profile of a sparse symmetric matrix is introduced. Tests on normal equation matrices encountered in adjustments of geodetic networks by least squares demonstrate that the algorithm produces significantly lower profiles than the widely used reverse Cuthill-McKee algorithm.
