Surveying Volume 2 by S. K. Duggal is an essential and practical text offering tons of information about the field of surveying and its latest developments. Summary Of The Book Surveying is a scientific technique of determining the three dimensional position of locations, and the distances and angles between each location. The information obtained from surveying is used to draw maps and ownership boundaries for government-related purposes and other requirements. In Surveying Volume 2, author S. K. Duggal provides a comprehensive coverage of the newest developments in this domain. This text contains several salient features such as a thorough coverage on measuring distances using tape, total station survey, and contouring. Information on data contour maps, topo-sheets, sheet numbering systems, and projection systems are included. Students will be exposed to the newest developments in classification survey and also learn about the changes in instrumentation such as GIS, Remote Sensing, and GPS. This book is an accompaniment to the second course in Civil Engineering. When it is coupled with the first volume, it makes up an entire course for two semesters. The material, which is usually exhaustive, has been arranged in a systematic and pointwise form. The text presents the latest developments in the field of surveying. It is divided into nine different chapters. Some of the topics covered in these chapters are Trigonometric Levelling, Triangulation, Hydrography, Aerial Survey, Remote Sensing, Geographic Information System, Global Positioning System, Stereophotography, Parallax, and Field Astronomy. Some of the latest developments such as Photogrammetric Products, Applications in Raster Data Structure, and Satellite Remote Sensing are included. To help students gain a thorough understanding of the material, the author has provided over 150 examples with solutions, 262 questions at the end of each section, and over 400 multiple choice questions. Dr. S. K. Duggal’s text is written in a lucid and sequential manner, helping readers grasp the complex subject of surveying. Surveying Volume 2 was published in 2009 by Tata Mcgraw-Hill Education.
