Hey, I'm a GISc student at Texas A&M Corpus Christi. I am trying to learn how to calculate a traverse using a compass vs. using a normal total station. I'm using a Azimuth hand traverse and when…Read more →

"All the above is basically true but remember, you have an angular closure that is independent of the summation of the latitudes & departures. How do the angles from the compass traverse compare with the angles from the transit (theodolite)…"

"The thing to remember about a compass survey is that if you get a bad compass reading, the error stays in that one leg. If you bust an angle in a transit survey, the error is carried through the entire traverse. You may have a bust in your compass…"

"First of all you have got to understand the accuracy limits of your equipment.  A good hand compass - one that can read to a degree or two - is hard to use to start with.  It must be held very steady, it must be level for each reading, it…"

Compass Traverse Calculations

Hey, I'm a GISc student at Texas A&M Corpus Christi. I am trying to learn how to calculate a traverse using a compass vs. using a normal total station. I'm using a Azimuth hand traverse and when I do the calculations my traverse isn't closing by 15 feet. The total length for the traverse was only 300 feet. it closes when I use a total station. So I wondering if I have to use a different equation? My professor said yes it is a different equation but never really told me what it was. So…See More

"Hi Mitchell, First what is a Azimuth hand traverse???.Are you you saying your using a hand held compass. There is only one way to calculated Azimuth and Bearings alone with a distance. You can use vectors,but your still doing basically the same…"
