    2-D triangulation networks has three formats with respect to the types of the observ ations (e.g. distances, angles, directions) as follows: tion must be precise and reliable too. Both the triangulation method and the traverse method of control are based on the character of the terrain, and not on the degree of precision to be attained; that is, each system is equally precise under the conditions in which each is used.

    CHAPTER 7 TRAVERSE Section I. SELECTION OF TRAVERSE DEFINITION A traverse is a series of straight lines called traverse legs. The surveyor uses them to. Measuring a series of positions in this way is known as "running a traverse." A traverse that begins and ends at different locations, in which at least one end point is initially unknown, is called an open traverse. A traverse that begins and ends at the same point, or at two different but known points, is called a closed traverse.

Reestablishment of. Triangulation Definition. The horizontal control in Geodetic survey is established either by triangulation or by precise traverse.

In triangulation, the system consists of a number of inter-connected triangles in which the length of only one line is called the base line and the angles of the triangle are measured very precisely. Traverse Surveying is a popular method of article includes the definition of traverse surveying along with its classification, errors in traversing, checks, the completed method of traversing and plotting of traverse survey.

The following three chapters describe procedures for adjusting trilateration, triangulation, and traverse surveys, in that order. Recently, the global navigation satellite systems (GNSSs), such as GPS, have gradually been replacing these traditional procedures for conducting precise surveys.

• Such provision of control point can be made either one• Such provision of control point can be made either one or combination of both the following methods 1.

Traverse 2. Triangulation Triangulation is considered to be more accurate than traversing as there is less accumulation of errors than that in traverse.

Record the number of paces for each trial in your field book. Calculate the average number of paces for each distance. Calculate the average length of your pace. Write up the lab in your field book, refer to the following example. Field book example (please remember that you can use additional pages to clearly show all necessary.

A closed traverse (polygonal, or loop traverse) is a practice of traversing when the terminal point closes at the starting point. The control points may envelop, or are set within the boundaries, of the control network. It allows geodetic triangulation for sub-closure of all known observed points.

It was his manual dealing with construction of wooden towers. Other. This book presents, in SI units, the various methods and concepts of surveying, laying greater emphasis on those that are commonly used. Relevant historical aspects are given.

The chap down. Open Traverse These commence at a known point and finish at an unknown point. Generally be avoided. Traverse may be classified by the accuracy attained typically precise, semi precise or low accuracy. Precise - An accuracy of greater than is expected.

Semi precise - An accuracy of up to or better. Low accuracy an accuracy less. Jack B. Evett, in Encyclopedia of Physical Science and Technology (Third Edition), III.B Triangulation. Triangulation provides a convenient means of establishing precise locations of a number of points (i.e., providing horizontal control) over a large area.

From these points, future surveys can be begun. For example, triangulation might be carried out over an area of considerable length. points on the ground. Joining two while bearing and distance is known as traverse.

A traverse station is each of the points of the traverse, while the traverse leg is the straight line between consecutive stations. Traverses may either be open or closed. Closed Traverse. unclosed traverse is likely to be used although, if availablewithin the locality of the highway, intermediate and end stations should, en-route, be tied-in to existing Ordnance Survey Triangulation Stations whose National Grid coordinates will be known.

This will effectively “close” the traverse. Traverse. use of triangulationz to the exclusion of traverse. for nearly all hori- zontal control. It has permitted triangulation to be carried into regions where this type^ of survey was considered impossible 8 few yeg~ ago.
