Abstract:

This report is a continuation of an earlier report on a potentially optimal method of recovering deflections of the vertical from RGSS data. In this report, the implementation of the method and estimates of the errors associated with the method are described. In the first section, an optimal weighting technique is derived. This technique also leads directly to a priori error estimates. Next, the results from using the method on hypothetical traverses are described. From these data, it appears that the optimal method can lead to a significant reduction in the errors in estimating the deflections of the vertical. A final appendix gives instructions for the use of the associated computer program. Author
