This comprehensive textbook on surveying covers, in a single volume, all the topics prescribed at the undergraduate level in civil engineering in India. It presents the various methods of surveying and the underlying concepts of surveying, including modern and advanced surveying techniques and instruments such as Total Station. The narrative is enlivened with glimpses of the historical development of the subject. The book is well illustrated with diagrams and is replete with worked-out examples and exercises. New to the revised edition are discussions on trilateration, methods of determination of time, longitude and latitude of a place, azimuth of a survey line, Total Station, geographic information system and global positioning system (GPS).
