Abstract

A broad definition of land surveying is that surveyors make measurements on or near the surface of the earth. These measurements have traditionally consisted of angles and distances made using optical surveying instruments. Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS or GPS), which use signals emitted by satellites to fix locations on the earth, are supplementing, or in some cases even replacing, traditional techniques and equipment.
