Procedure 1. Study the façade. Take photos. Measure by manual taping whatever can be easily reached. Make a preliminary drawing. Choose and number the target points. Place adhesive targets on the wall, where possible. 2. Select or lay out a base line. The intersection of the façade and pavement makes a good base line, if it is straight and horizontal. Use a stretched cord if no suitable physical base line is available, as shown in the figure. The figure shows what is possibly the most difficult measuring situation, a curved building on sloping ground. Mark two theodolite setup points A and B on the ground or pavement, which can be at different heights and at different distances from the base line. Record their horizontal distance c apart and their horizontal distances d A and d B to the base line. 3. Set up and level the theodolite at location A. With the telescope horizontal, sight and mark a point T at any place on the wall also visible from location B.
