TBA4231 APPLIED GEOMATICS
Date: 6.12.2010
Time: 0900 – 1300
Solution, version 12.1.2011.
For the theory questions check also the curriculum. For some of the questions the answers are in
keyword form (some more text is required to obtain the top score).
Grades, included the project assignment counting 30% of the final grade: 3A3B13C3D1E.
Question no 1: Total station etc
1.1
(a)
Explain what a bearing is.
See the textbook, chapter 6 (2010). The horizontal angle from the
northern part of a parallel of the north axis going through a point
(G2 on the figure) to the vector from the same point to another
point (T1). Clockwise. Numerical value between 0 and 400 gon
(b)
Verify with your own calculations that the bearing from G2 to T1 is
φ
G2T1
= 247,6998
gon.

From the signs of

E
and
∆
N
(and looking at the figure) we find the bearing to be in the 3.rd
quadrant:
ϕ
G2T1
= 247,6998 gon
(c)
Calculate the bearing from T1 to T2,
φ
T1T2
, by using all the measurements in point T1
towards the known control points.
NB: Two of the bearings, those to G1 and G3, were given in the exam text. Some of the students
did not see that, and they did some unnecessary calculations.
Remember to ”turn” the bearing from G2 to T1 which is calculated in (b),:to the bearing from T1

The weights are relative numbers, the weights 1, 1 and 2 are used here. The observation of unit
weight is therefore an angle measured 2 times.
3 suggestions in the table above, where one of the horizontal angles (
β
3
)
is measured 4 times
compared with 2 times for the other 2
β
angles.
Therefore: Weighted mean must be used
to
calculate the mean value of the measurements, where measurement/suggestion no 3 have the
double weight compared with the 2 others.

1.2
(a)
Calculate the standard deviation of the bearing in (1.1.c) from point T1 to T2, s
T1T2
.
Starting point is the 3 calculated suggestions of the bearing T1T2 in question 1.2.c.
Alternatively you can start with the given standard deviation, not correct but you get some score.
The weighted mean value is 316,58996 gon. We have to calculate the corrections,
v
i
, of the 3
measurements (the difference between mean value and the actual value):
