Now, it is in this matter of generalization that the judgment of the topographer is most severely tested. He must be able to take a broad as well as a detailed view of the country, he must understand...
Seite 323 - A traverse line consists of a series of direction and distance measurements. Each course, as the direction and the accompanying distance are called, depends upon the one immediately preceding it, and a continuous chain is thus formed.
