Please note: "Basic Surveying" is not for use in America. This is a British book. It contains extensive information about the National Grid and the Ordnance Survey of 1791. All measurements are in meters. Obviously, some of the basic tenants of surveying will apply. I was expecting more information about geodetic mapping in the United States.

Even though it refers to laws outside the US, this book provides an excellent overview of the surveying process under various situations. Different types of surveys are outlined. The reader comes away with a good understanding of the complexities involved as well as some helpful procedures for measurinf terrain.

Excellent book, easy to read and understand. If you want to know or if you want to review Surveying, this is the book for you.

If you are interested to learn about surveying and do not have any idea what is it and how to start,this book is right for you
