Elementary Engineering Surveying is a text book for students attending the first course on Engineering Survey. The book is written very concisely and to the point for student to devout less time for study without compromising the quality of understanding and learning the elements of engineering survey. The book has eleven chapters prepared in modular form with an aim to carry out field surveying systematically. Starting from fundamentals of surveying, chapters include measurement of horizontal and vertical distances and angles, surveying instruments and their working with due importance to mapping, the ultimate objective of surveying. Each chapter contains many solved examples, in which field data have been used. Inclusion of a chapter on errors and its effect on measurement and another chapter on determination of azimuth from astronomical observation has made the book a unique one in the elementary level. Further, the book is endowed with excellent figures and rich diversity of field problems which are expected to serve students best.
