Simple construction surveying for rural applications



Surveying can only be learnt by practical training and not by merely studying a book about the subject. Nevertheless, this Agrodok provides important lessons for those who have an interest in surveying techniques related to construction and building. It explains what construction surveying is about, describes several surveying methods and techniques, and the use of devices for measuring horizontal and vertical directions. The possibility for errors hides in every phase of a survey, but applying the good surveying practices described in this booklet will help to prevent or timely detect them. Although this Agrodok only describes some generic concepts of surveying, the clear illustrations of geometric principles and how to use certain devices makes it a very practical booklet.
