The ninth edition of Paul Wolf and Russell Brinker's best-selling text, Elementary Surveying, has been substantially revised so that students are informed of the latest technological developments in both field and office work. A highly readable introduction to the field of surveying (and past winner of the National Award for Excellence), this textbook emphasizes the theory of errors and correlation of theory and practical field methods. To remind students that surveyors must constantly strive to reduce the sizes of errors and eliminate mistakes, lists of typical errors and mistakes are given at the end of most chapters.

Elementary Surveying has been the best selling surveying text for many years. The authors continue to focus on the text's readability and clear presentation of basic concepts and practical material in each of the areas fundamental to the practice of surveying (geomatics). Although the book is elementary, its depth and breadth have made it suitable for self study, and for use as a reference by those engaged in the practice of surveying and its related disciplines such as civil engineering, forestry, geography, geology, landscape architecture, and others. As with past editions, this text continues to emphasize the presence of errors in surveying, while practical suggestions resulting from the authors' many years of experience are interjected throughout the book.
This tenth edition of Elementary Surveying (An Introduction to Geomatics) has been substantially updated and modified to reflect the rapidly changing nature of surveying (geomatics). Many additions and changes have been made to keep this the most up-to-date textbook available in surveying.
New to the tenth edition:
