TRIANGULATION WITH INDEPENDENT MODELS

STRIP TRIANGULATION IS REGARDED AS A CONNECTION PROCEDURE BETWEEN CONSECUTIVE OVERLAPPING MODELS. THE MODELS IN TURN CAN BE FORMED EITHER NUMERICALLY OR WITH AN ANALOG INSTRUMENT. A METHOD FOR FORMING A MODEL IS DEMONSTRATED AND THE CONNECTION ROUTINE IS DESCRIBED. FINALLY THE TRIANGULATION IS DEMONSTRATED BY A COMPUTED EXAMPLE. THE RESULTS SHOW THAT THE FINAL COORDINATES OBTAINED FROM COMPARATOR MEASUREMENTS HAVE A HIGH STANDARD OF ACCURACY AND ARE UNDOUBTEDLY SUPERIOR TO THOSE DERIVED FROM A WILD A8. NEVERTHELESS THE RESULTS OBTAINED FROM THE A8 STRIP ARE SUFFICIENTLY ACCURATE FOR MAPPING PURPOSES, AND AN INSTRUMENT LIKE THE A8 CAN BE USED TO ADVANTAGE FOR TRIANGULATION PROCEDURES. /AUTHOR/
