Written for geodesists using computers of
modest capacity, the book reviews the latest 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.
