About this book

This book is the translated English version of a text on industrial surveys, originally published in Slovak by SPEKTRUM STU Publishing. This updated version is not only a translation of the original, but also a reviewed, extended version, which reflects up-to-date international standards and regulations. 
The book covers topics in engineering surveying not available in other publications in this complex form, and addresses the design methodology, data processing and implementation of geodetic measurements under specific conditions to make industrial work environments safer and more efficient. The book begins by introducing readers to these conditions, and then discusses design of maps, geodetic networks and  information systems of industrial plants, the usage of cartesian and polar coordinate measuring systems, terrestrial laser scanning technology, as well as measurement of cranes, rotary kilns and special objects of nuclear power plants. The book will be of use to teachers, students, practitioners (e.g. surveyors), quality production managers, equipment designers and mechanical engineers.
