Example text

This freedom reduces to a minimum the fieldwork required to map a particular parcel of land. Knowledge of the elevation or geodetic position of the area being surveyed, in order to account for the earth’s shape, is not necessary. Because the shape of the earth is ignored, there is no need to collect information on the geodetic positions of points within the parcel. This is a further reduction of the fieldwork required to survey and map a parcel of land. The computations required are all two-dimensional and relatively simple.

The few systems that are going to be discussed here are all “conformal” projection systems. This means that angles measured at the surface of the earth are presented on the projection (map) with minimum distortion. 2. TANGENT PLANE PROJECTIONS The most common form of plane projection systems in use today is the tangent plane projection system. Although it is slowly being replaced by more sophisticated systems, most survey maps or plats are based on this simple system. This is especially true of small surveys and surveys performed before the World War II.

8. BEARINGS 37 Imagine a flat plane perpendicular to the line of intersection of a land line and a meridian. The vertical ray that is the line of intersection will appear as a geometric point on that imaginary plane. The vertical planes that are the land lines and the meridian will intersect the imaginary plane as geometric lines. The description of the relationship of the land line and the meridian has now been reduced to a two-dimensional image. This relationship is valid only at a particular land point of intersection.
