Historical Surveying

What is Surveying?

The art of making measurements of the relative

positions of natural and man-made features on the

Earths surface, and the presentation of this

information either graphically or numerically.

Since when?

The first surveying works date back to the antiquity,

the Greek provided the first account of surveying

techniques.

Euclid founded the theoretical background for

surveying by the development of his geometry.

Levelling

The surveyors level

Surveying vs. Geodesy

in most languages there are no distinctions

between the terms

in English (according to Vanicek - Krakiwsky):

Surveying: the practice of positioning

Geodesy: the theoretical foundation of

surveying

Surveying as a profession.

Surveying:

The art of making measurements of the relative

positions of natural and man-made features on the

Earths surface, and the presentation of this

information either graphically or numerically.

Geodesy:

Geodesy is the discipline that deals with the

measurements and representation of the Earth,

including its gravity field, in a three-dimensional

time varying space.

Geodesy focus on the Earth and neglect any manmade features on it (e.g. buildings, public utilities,

etc.), while surveying use the results of geodesy for

positioning and mapping of these features.

Recall the definition of Surveying:

positioning is usually

horizontal projection of the actual

field measurements

Geodetic Surveying

Classification of Surveying

large areas

surface of the Earth can not supposed to be flat

the curvature of the Earth is taken into account

and shape of the Earth and determining the gravity field of the Earth.

In order to use the relative positioning, a proper number of

control points are needed. These points:

are coordinated points;

are marked.

Control Networks

Why is it necessary to have a common countrywide

coordinate system?

Many engineering tasks cover a large area (highways,

bridges, tunnels, channels, land registry, etc.), where the

common coordinate system (reference system) should be

available.

The Control Network provide us with control points given in

the same refence system (coordinate system).

Thus measuring the relative positions of unknown points

using these control points, the coordinates of the new

points can be computed in the same reference system.

Surveyors are needed:

to maintain the geometric order during the

construction process

to provide fundamental data for the design

and planning process

to provide quantity control during the

construction process (for example: earthwork

quantities)

to monitor the structure after the construction

(subsidence, deformations,

etc.)

Methods of height determination

Levelling

The surveyors level

Question 1:

What does the height (elevation) of a point mean?

Question 2:

What does it mean, when point B is at a higher

elevation than point A?

Answer 1:

The height of a point represents its energy level

above a reference level.

Answer 2:

For example water flows from point B to point A.

Definition of height systems:

The potential energy of a point should be represented by the

height of a point. Hence water should flow from the higher

elevation towards the lower elevation.

Should have metric unit.

What is the 0 level?

Since the height systems should represent the potential

energy level, we need a reference surface, which is an

equipotential surface of Earths gravity field.

The surface of calm water forms an equipotential surface

Mean Sea Level Kronstadt (Baltic Sea) is used in Hungary

(formerly Triest, Adriatic Sea).

1D position determination - determining the height

We can not determine absolute heights above the

reference level

Relative height determination - determining the height

differences

Levelling benchmarks are needed - control points for

which the elevation is known.

How can we determine the height difference?

Two solutions:

setting a horizontal plane, and measuring the offset from this

plane

measuring the slope and slope distance between the points

Levelling

Over short distances the horizontal line and level line coincide.

For a distance of 100m the effect of the curvature is less than 1 mm.

The levelling device (called level) must be set up so, that the line of sight

is perpendicular to the gravity vector (plumb line). -> the line of sight is

horizontal.
