This chapter deals with optical and digital levelling – the techniques used with laser levels to determine and process heights on site are given in Chapter 11 (which covers setting out). All methods of height measurement determine the heights of points above (or below) an agreed datum. On site or in the office, surveyors, builders and engineers all use, on a daily basis, horizontal and vertical datums as references for all types of measurement including levelling. 1 shows a plumb-bob (a weight on a length of string or cord) suspended over a point P.

The biggest of these is the FIG Congress, which takes place once every four years. net/. Other UK organisations ● The Survey Association (TSA), is a trade association that brings together businesses engaged in land and hydrographic surveying. Within the association, companies benefit by having members available to advise them on the best way to collect, interpret and apply spatial data. In a similar manner to the MAPPP of the RICS, the TSA’s Technical Committee has also produced a series of Guidance Notes on various topics in surveying ranging from subjects such as digital orthophotography to terrestrial laser scanning.
