Surveying and Levelling is a comprehensive textbook aimed at undergraduate students of civil engineering and covers the entire spectrum of the subject in a single volume.

Beginning with basic surveying techniques such as chain surveying, compass surveying, plane tabling, and theodolite surveying using conventional instruments, the book covers curve surveying, tachometry, trigonometrical levelling, triangulation, photogrammetry, hydrographic surveying, and astronomical surveying. The text discusses the calculation of areas and volumes using survey data. It details instruments such as autolevels, digital instruments, and electronic theodolites. The book incorporates chapters on modern methods of surveying such as remote sensing, global positioning, and geographic information systems as well as modern surveying instruments such as electromagnetic distance measuring devices (EDMs) and total stations.

Written in a student-friendly manner, the book incorporates a large number of solved examples after every key concept as well as review questions and ample exercise problems at the end of each chapter. With its lucid explanation of concepts and principles, this book will be a useful text for diploma courses and competitive examinations, and will also serve as a reference text for professionals.
