Short Note: Traverse Computation on the Ellipsoid Instead of on the Map Plane
MetadataShow full item record
This short note describes an approach to compute coordinates from a survey traverse (properly reduced to the spheroid) without the need for tedious iterative computations via the map grid. A numerical example of a ~160km traverse is used to illustrate the efficiency and accuracy of the proposed approach. This shows a 67% improvement in efficiency, and the final coordinates agree to within 2mm ineasting and 3mm in northing with those computed using the map-grid-based approach.

Estimation of Helmert Orthometric Heights Using Digital Barcode Levelling, Observed Gravity and Topographic Mass-Density Data Over Part of the Darling Scarp, Western AustraliaFeatherstone, Will; Allister, N. (2001)The normal orthometric corrections used in the 1971 establishment of the Australian Height Datum (AHD) do not properly account for local variations in the Earth?s gravity field. Therefore, Helmert orthometric heights ...
