Surveying with Construction Applications
For undergraduate Engineering and Engineering Technology courses in Civil, Building, Surveying, Construction, and Natural Resources programs.This streamlined, fully updated Fourth Edition maintains the same accessible, applications-driven approach as its predecessors-beginning with a firm foundation in the principles of surveying, then supporting this foundation with real-world construction applications. While Kavanagh does reflect the latest developments in techniques and instrumentation, coverage also includes in-depth discussions of more traditional topics.
