Control Surveys

  • Carlos Najera

Abstract

Control surveys provide horizontal and vertical positions of points to which supplementary surveys are adjusted. Control surveys provide the standard of accuracy for subsequent and subordinate surveys to attain. All projects, including route surveys, photogrammetry, and topographic mapping are made up of a series of vertical and horizontal field surveys. These secondary surveys are dependent on control for position and relative accuracy.
