Height-controlled three-dimensional adjustment of horizontal networks
- 33 Downloads
The principles of three-dimensional geodesy are used in the adjustment of horizontal networks with heights and astronomic coordinates held fixed. The proposed method is simpler and faster than any conventional method, as it uses measurements on the terrain without any reductions to a computational surface. There are no restrictions on the lengths of the lines.
