All measurement produces some amount of error; whether from human mistakes, instrumentation inaccuracy, or environmental features, these errors must be accounted and adjusted for when accuracy is critical. This book describes how errors are identified, analyzed, measured, and corrected, with a focus on least squares adjustment―the most rigorous methodology available.
- Apply industry-standard methodologies to error analysis and adjustment
- Translate your skills to the real-world with instruction focused on the practical
- Master the fundamentals as well as specific computations and analysis
- Strengthen your understanding of critical topics on the Fundamentals in Surveying Licensing Exam
As spatial technologies expand in both use and capability, so does our need for professionals who understand how to check and adjust for errors in spatial data. Conceptual knowledge is one thing, but practical skills are what counts when accuracy is at stake; Adjustment Computations provides the real-world training you need to identify, analyze, and correct for potentially crucial errors.
