Written for geodesists using computers of modest capacity, the book reviews
development in geodetic computation techniques. The aim is to take stock of available data
(datums, ellipsoids, units etc.), to focus on applications and to illuminate spatial developments.
Topics cover datums and reference systems, geodetic arc distances, different projections and
coordinate systems. The material has been specially chosen and covers the practical aspect of
geodesy, including the demonstration of global examples. Stressing the how-to-do approach, the
book is of interest to students in geodesy, GIS consultants, hydrographers and land surveyors.
