The Geodetic Survey of South Africa1

Article metrics


THE Report on the Geodetic Survey of South Africa, presented to both Houses of the Cape Parliament, and printed in Blue-book form, is interesting and important. It is a record of geodetic work well planned and ably carried out, and it has a permanent value, not only from a scientific point of view, but as an accurate basis upon which all future surveys of the country may be confidently founded.
