      In geodetic surveying the curvature of the earth is taken into account while calculating reduced levels, angles, bearings and distances. This type of surveying is usually employed for large survey works. Index to the Literature of Food Investigation (Volume 9) by Glennie, A.

The Survey of India, headquartered at Dehra Dun, has 18 Geo Spatial divisions ranging from the prediction of tides to aerial survey. It has 23 Geo-spatial Data Centers spread across India, each catering to the respective administrative area.

The geodetic survey of India has profited of late in many ways through its connection with the international association. We have been able to refer questions of difficulty to Prof essor Sir George Darwin, K.C.B., the representative of Great Britain, and we have derived very great benefit from the advice and help of Professor Helmert, the.

Surveying or land surveying is the technique, profession, and science of determining the terrestrial or three-dimensional positions of points and the distances and angles between them.

A land surveying professional is called a land points are usually on the surface of the Earth, and they are often used to establish maps and boundaries for ownership, locations, such as building. A theodolite / θ iː ˈ ɒ d ə l aɪ t / is a precision optical instrument for measuring angles between designated visible points in the horizontal and vertical planes.

The traditional use has been for land surveying, but they are also used extensively for building and infrastructure construction, and some specialized applications such as meteorology and rocket launching. India's Northeast frontier is at the margins of three study areas: South Asia, Southeast Asia, and East Asia.

This paper attempts a history of “mapping” in its broader sense as a cultural universal over a relatively long period. The Great Game of Mapping the Himalaya Rasoul Sorkhabi Kipling popularised the term 'Great Game' for rivalries and conflicts among Britain, Russia, France, and China to gain political and economic control of the Indian subcontinent and central Asian highlands during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries (for more information refer to my article 'Kipling and Kim' in HJ, Vol.

The first Ramsden theodolite was built for this survey. The survey was finally completed in The Great Trigonometric Survey of India began in The Indian survey had an enormous scientific impact.The narrative barely focuses on the characters and stories of the men, Lambton and Everest, but rather goes into exhaustive detail on the day to day mapping of the Great Trigonometrical Survey.

But while the book could have focused on the difficulties, tragedies, and triumphs of mapping India, the story behind the survey; it instead reads page Reviews: The origin of the Survey of India dates back to Rennell’s work in Bengal in s; the survey work was later shifted to southern India.

Following the defeat of Tippu Sultan of Mysore by the East India Company forces led by Arthur Wellesely intwo survey works were initiated in southern India.
