Traversing
1 Introduction:
A traverse is a series of consecutive lines whose ends have been marked in the field, and
whose lengths and directions have been determined from measurements.
Traversing is the act of marking lines, establishing travers

Angles, Azimuths, and Bearings
I Introduction:
Determining the locations of points and orientations of lines frequently depends on
measurements of angles and directions. In surveying, directions are given by azimuths
and bearings.

Making observations (measurements), and subsequent computations and analyses
using them, are fundamental tasks of surveyors.
Good measurements require a combination of human skill and mechanical equi
