About this book

Geodetic datum (including coordinate datum, height datum, depth datum, gravimetry datum) and geodetic systems (including geodetic coordinate system, plane coordinate system, height system, gravimetry system) are the common foundations for every aspect of geomatics. This course book focuses on geodetic datum and geodetic systems, and describes the basic theories, techniques, methods of geodesy. The main themes include: the various techniques of geodetic data acquisition, geodetic datum and geodetic control networks, geoid and height systems, reference ellipsoid and geodetic coordinate systems, Gaussian projection and Gaussian plan coordinates and the establishment of geodetic coordinate systems. The framework of this book is based on several decades of lecture noted and the contents are developed systematically for a complete introduction to the geodetic foundations of geomatics.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“The present work integrates both classical materials and modern developments in geodesy, it describes pure theoretical approaches and recent practical applications. The book can be used as a general textbook for undergraduates studying geomatics and survejing and mapping in higher education institutions. For technicians who are engaged in geomatic and surveying engineering, the book is strongly recommended as a basic and useful reference guide.” (Claudia-Veronika Meister, zbMATH, Vol. 1296, 2014)
