EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Updated throughout, this highly readable best-seller presents basic concepts and practical material in each of the areas fundamental to modern surveying (geomatics) practice. Its depth and breadth are ideal for self-study.Includes a new Chapter 16 on Kinematic GPS. Features several new sections on machine control, localization of GPS surveys, and construction staking using GPS added to Chapters 16, 19, and 23. Moves Astronomical observations chapter to Appendix C to reflect that in recent years, kinematic GPS has replaced astronomical observations for position and azimuth. Emphasizes total stations as the instruments for making angle and distance observations.A useful reference for civil engineers.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

PREFACE. THE Author of this very practical treatise on Scotch Loch - Fishing desires clearly that it may be of use to all who had it. He does not pretend to have written anything new, but to have attempted to put what he has to say in as readable a form as possible. Everything in the way of the history and habits of fish has been studiously avoided, and technicalities have been used as sparingly as possible. The writing of this book has afforded him pleasure in his leisure moments, and that pleasure would be much increased if he knew that the perusal of it would create any bond of sympathy between himself and the angling community in general. This section is interleaved with blank shects for the readers notes. The Author need hardly say that any suggestions addressed to the case of the publishers, will meet with consideration in a future edition. We do not pretend to write or enlarge upon a new subject. Much has been said and written-and well said and written too on the art of fishing but loch-fishing has been rather looked upon as a second-rate performance, and to dispel this idea is one of the objects for which this present treatise has been written. Far be it from us to say anything against fishing, lawfully practised in any form but many pent up in our large towns will bear us out when me say that, on the whole, a days loch-fishing is the most convenient. One great matter is, that the loch-fisher is depend- ent on nothing but enough wind to curl the water, -and on a large loch it is very seldom that a dead calm prevails all day, -and can make his arrangements for a day, weeks beforehand whereas the stream- fisher is dependent for a good take on the state of the water and however pleasant and easy it may be for one living near the banks of a good trout stream or river, it is quite another matter to arrange for a days river-fishing, if one is looking forward to a holiday at a date some weeks ahead. Providence may favour the expectant angler with a good day, and the water in order but experience has taught most of us that the good days are in the minority, and that, as is the case with our rapid running streams, -such as many of our northern streams are, -the water is either too large or too small, unless, as previously remarked, you live near at hand, and can catch it at its best. A common belief in regard to loch-fishing is, that the tyro and the experienced angler have nearly the same chance in fishing, -the one from the stern and the other from the bow of the same boat. Of all the absurd beliefs as to loch-fishing, this is one of the most absurd. Try it. Give the tyro either end of the boat he likes give him a cast of ally flies he may fancy, or even a cast similar to those which a crack may be using and if he catches one for every three the other has, he may consider himself very lucky. Of course there are lochs where the fish are not abundant, and a beginner may come across as many as an older fisher but we speak of lochs where there are fish to be caught, and where each has a fair chance. Again, it is said that the boatman has as much to do with catching trout in a loch as the angler. Well, we dont deny that. In an untried loch it is necessary to have the guidance of a good boatman but the same argument holds good as to stream-fishing...

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

ELEMENTARY SURVEYING by ARTHUR LOVAT HIGGINS. PREFACE: Now that Elementary Surveying is regarded as something more than a mere adjunct to mathematics and geography, it appeared to the writer that there might be a place for a little book which aims at opening a vista of the educational and professional possibilities of the subject, presenting it as the application of a few general geometrical principles rather than something akin to a handicraft with each operation an entity. It is hoped this book will stimulate enthusiasm among those who contemplate entering one of the professions implied in the Introduction or, otherwise, create an interest in the other mans job. The text is based largely upon the syllabus in Elementary Surveying in the General School Examination of the University of London, and matter outside this curriculum is indicated with an asterisk, suggesting the introduction to an intermediate course in the subject. Also many of the questions are taken from papers set by the writer in this particular examination and he takes this opportunity of expressing his indebtedness to the Senate of that University for their courtesy in permitting him to reproduce this material. In addition to the theoretical exercises, a number of field exercises are added, and these no doubt will suggest lines upon which others can be devised in keeping with what may be conveniently styled local conditions. These examples are short, and anticipate the adoption of parues of three four at most pupils, this organisation, in the writers opinion, being the only rational way of handling the subject. Parts of larger surveys or schemes can be allocated to these parties, who retain their identity as far as is practicable. Prior to going into the field the routine should be outlined so as to reduce supervision to a minimum, and, better still, to leave the parties to their own devices. The writer takes this opportunity of expressing his indebtedness to Mr. A. N. Utting, of the Cambridge University Engineering Laboratory, for preparing the drawings from which the figures are reproduced, also his thanks to Mr. S. G. Soal, M. A., of Queen Mary College, for his kindness in reading the proofs. In conclusion the writer acknowledges the agency of his wife, whose influence really led him to undertake this short but pleasant enterprise.
