Geodetic datum (including coordinate datum, top datum, intensity datum, gravimetry datum) and geodetic platforms (including geodetic coordinate procedure, aircraft coordinate procedure, peak approach, gravimetry method) are the typical foundations for each point of geomatics. This direction e-book makes a speciality of geodetic datum and geodetic platforms, and describes the fundamental theories, options, tools of geodesy. the most topics contain: a number of the thoughts of geodetic information acquisition, geodetic datum and geodetic regulate networks, geoid and top platforms, reference ellipsoid and geodetic coordinate platforms, Gaussian projection and Gaussian plan coordinates and the institution of geodetic coordinate platforms. The framework of this e-book relies on a number of many years of lecture famous and the contents are built systematically for an entire advent to the geodetic foundations of geomatics.
