Abstract:

The evaluation of tests of the MRA -1CW telemetering device by observation of the details of geodetic points which occur as a result of the compacting of trigonometric networks, is presented in this article. The application of the test in which the position and altitude of 132 points of the investigated field i.e., detailed network of points, the precise location of which are known are determined with the aid of the tellurometer. These tests show that radiotelemetering devices can be used with success for the observation of detailed points and that the polar method is the best and most expedient both from the standpoint of technical observation and from the standpoint of economy. The observation of detailed points by the polar method from one point were implemented with precision by characterizing the average quadratic error of position with relation to precise details of the network plus or minus 6 cm. Such precision is satisfactory for determining detailed points by means of intersections or with the assistance of markings or of auxiliary polygonometric operations. If the polar method with two points is used, the precision in position is increased by plus or minus 5 cm which corresponds to the detailed point with high precision. Author
