Publisher Synopsis

"This concise book renders an advanced exposition of the theory of error propagation in geodetic networks that are comprised of up to a few hundred nodes... The reviewed book constitutes a timely and valuable contribution to the theory of plane geodetic network analysis and design. An outstanding feature of this book is the extensive use it makes of the nowadays easy availability of sophisticated automatic computing tools." - Mathematical Reviews Read more...
