Satellite Station Tables

Nature volume 135, page 251 (16 February 1935) | Download Citation



IT sometimes happens in minor triangulation that well-marked objects, which are otherwise suitable as trigonometrical points, cannot be observed from, though they are well placed for ‘observing to’. Burma, with its innumerable pagodas, offers thousands of examples of this, and it is not surprising that the book under review should have been written by the port surveyor at Rangoon. These tables will save labour in cases in which there is much satellite-station work, though in ordinary minor triangulation, in which satellite stations are usually avoided, or are but rarely used, the surveyor may prefer to make his corrections by the application of elementary trigonometry.
