    DescriptionThe third edition of this well-known textbook, first published in 1980, has been completely revised in order to adequately reflect the drastic changes which occured in the field of geodesy in the last twenty years. Reference systems are now well established by space techniques, which dominate positioning and gravity field determination. Terrestrial techniques still play an important role at local and regional applications, whereby remarkable progress has been made with respect to automatic data aquisition. Evaluation methods are now three-dimensional in principle, and have to take the gravity field into account. Geodetic control networks follow these developments, with far-reaching consequences for geodetic practice. Finally, the increased accuracy of geodetic products and high data rates have significantly increased the contributions of geodesy to geodynamics research, thus strengthening the role of geodesy within the geosciences. The present state of geodesy is illustrated by recent examples of instruments and results. An extensive reference list supports further studies.

    Review quote
    "There is sufficient new material in this edition to prompt anyone seriously interested in the subject to consider purchasing it."L. M. Sebert in: Geomatica 1/2002 "Dieses Buch wird allen Geodasie-Studenten und den Berufskollegen, die mit geodatischen Fragestellungen konfrontiert werden, zur Anschaffung warmstens empfohlen."B. Witte in: Flachenmanagement und Bodenordnung "Es ist das bisher einzige Textbuch mit einem aktuellen Uberblick uber die Geometrische und Physikalische Geodasie, uber geodatische Referenzsysteme und uber die zeitabhangigen geodatischen Konzeptionen im Zeitalter der geodatischen 'NanoScience'. Der Autor ist zum neuesten Werk zu begluckwunschen: Moge eine weitere Verbreitung ein minimaler Dank fur die jahrzehntelange harte Arbeit am neuen Text sein. Als Leitfaden fur die eigene Arbeit benotigt jeder Geodat und Geoinformatiker dieses hoch willkommene Textbuch."E. W. Grafarend in: Zeitschrift fur Vermessungswesen 6/2001 "Deshalb konnen wir das Buch als Lehr- und Handbuch fur Studenten, Hochschullehrer, wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiter, Promovierende, sogar Diplomingenieure in der Praxis, fur jede, die in einem einzigen Band ein klares Bild uber die gesamte (hohere) Geodasie und ihrer Lage in dem Prozess des naturwissenschaflichen Erkennens der Erde bekommen mochten wohl begrundet empfehlen."Peter Biro in: Allgemeine Vermessungsnachrichten 1/2006
