Introduction to Geometrical and Physical Geodesy : Foundations of Geomatics
Introduction to Geometrical and Physical Geodesy: The Foundation of Geomatics explores geodesy, the discipline dealing with the measurement and representation of the earth. Establishing GIS as a coordinate-based system and building on this concept, the book culminates in the reader's applied knowledge of geodesy. To simplify presentation, mathematics in this book are discussed without origin or proof, and all formulas have detailed examples illustrating their use. Intended for the classroom or professional reference, this book simplifies the geodesic formulas related to surveying, making it a practical approach to geodesy and GIS.
