UNCERTAINTY ON SURFACE/VOLUME CALCULATIONS

When I started my career, I have been attracted by one (of many) question : how accurate is the surface/volume calculations knowing the uncertainties of the points that define these geometrical figures. I really wanted to know in term of standard deviation what would be the "end results".

The solution was to propagate the variances (standard deviation squared) into the functional model (the mathematical formula in short) and to retrieve the results I was looking for.

SOFTWARE FREE BUBBLE GNSS ROVER RTK

Good news for all of you who are using a GNSS RTK without the fancy tilt meter and IMU onboard !

You can turn your today GNSS receiver to do the "free bubble style" by mixing up 2 technologies that popped up last year.

My approach of this problem has been developed and tested alread

THE DEAD END OF THE TRAVERSE METHOD

One of the typical survey method for determining station's points and survey details has been the traverse method.

I would say "too much" talks and controversial exchanges for a method that is simply not appropriated anymore considering modern instruments. Long traverses (geodetic) have been anyway replaced by usin

Amazing Survey Markers Around the World

With Survey Earth in a Day just around the corner again, knowing where your local markers are will come in handy when deciding where to submit a point from. Aside from our growing collection of Survey Marker Photos (photos tagged 'marker' inside the community), occasionally we will share marker photos on our Facebook Page which surveyors around the world respond to with, of course, their own marker photos.  Take a look at this post for example and the comments which followed.

Plotting while measuring saves time and make the drawing accurate with no ambiguities. Creating accurate drawings is painless with a Bluetooth enabled DISTO device. If you paired the Distometer with AutoCAD mobile app, the Plotting can be done simultaneously.

First turn on Bluetooth in both devices and pair them. See the image below.

Typical Surveyor's Report

Here is a typical Surveyor's Report attached to many of the jobs that I do. This particular Land Survey was extremely complex and difficult but I thought you might get a kick out of seeing how this is done. The names and other information have been altered to protect the innocent.

Incredibly Interesting Out-Of-Print Books for Geodetic Surveyors

I stumbled upon a few interesting books that you may find as interesting as I have. These books will be particularly interesting to geodetic surveyors  and those surveyors across the planet who annually participate in Survey Earth in a Day.  Flat- Earthers may find them to challenge their theories.

A history of the determination of the figure of the earth from arc measurements
