Fundamental Techniques Used for Surveying

Fundamental Techniques Used for Surveying are

Triangulation:

In this technique numerous triangles are inter-connected and overlapped to measure angles from a surveying station.

Trilateration:

It follows the same technique as in Triangulation with additional use of Electronic Distance Meter (EDM).

Traverse:

In this technique multiple lines of pre-measured lengths are inter-connected to measure angles and distances.

Leveling:

In this technique the difference in heights in a terrain are measured with the help of graduated rods.

Radiation:

In this technique radiating lines are drawn from a focal point to defined boundaries converted to a small scale surveying sheet.

Surveying finds multiple industrial applications across various domains. It is an integral part of Civil Engineering Discipline.
