Electromagnetic Distance Measurement

By the International Association of Geodesy

© 1967

Electromagnetic distance measurement, by using light and microwaves for direct linear measurements and thus circumventing the need for traditional methods of triangulation, may well introduce a new era in surveying. This book brings together the work of forty-eight geodesists from twenty-five countries. They discuss various new EDM instruments—among them the Tellurometer, Geodimeter, and air- and satellite-borne systems—and investigate the complex sources of error. The book is therefore a unique and comprehensive source on the subject. UNESCO and R.I.C.S. have assisted financially in its production.

    The International Association of Geodesy (IAG) is a scientific organization in the field of geodesy. It promotes scientific cooperation and research in geodesy on a global scale and contributes to it through its various research bodies. It is an active member of the International Association of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG) which itself is a member of the International Council for Science (ICSU).
