A new feature is the reclassification of order of accuracy in triangulation and the expanded coverage of triangulation computations and trilateration. Numerous examples are utilized to show application of state coordinate systems.A technique for more reliable solar observations to determine azimuth is used. The author has expanded the methods of stadia to incorporate speecialized stadia instruments. Introduction is made to automatic devices used in photogrammetry for obtaining earthwork quantities. The author has added an appendix on adjustment of level nets, traverse nets, and triangulation by the method of least squares.
