  Archaeology Wordsmith
A pulsed induction meter or soil conductivity meter generate electromagnetic waves at the surface of the earth, penetrating it and inducing currents in conducting ore bodies, thereby generating new waves that are detected by instruments at the surface or by a receiving coil lowered into a borehole.
The method of surveying used requires a grid to be measured out on the site and readings to be taken at regular intervals.
It compares well with magnetic surveying, as the instruments are simple and cheap and also because modern features such as power cables, iron scrap, and standing buildings do not affect the readings.

  Surveying - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Surveying is the technique and science of accurately determining the terrestrial or three-dimensional space position of points and the distances and angles between them.
Boundary survey: the actual physical extent of property ownership, typically witnessed by monuments or markers, such as (typically iron rods, pipes or concrete monuments in the ground, but also tacks or blazes in trees, piled stone corners or other types of monuments) are measured, and a map, or plat, is drawn from the data.
Mortgage surveys are required by title companies and lending institutions when they provide financing to show that there are no structures encroaching on the property and that the position of structures is generally within zoning and building code requirements.

Land surveying includes both geodetic surveying, used for large areas and taking into account the curvature of the earth’s surface (see geodesy), and plane surveying, which deals with areas sufficiently small that the earth’s curvature is negligible and can be disregarded.
Branches of surveying are named according to their purpose, e.g., topographic surveying, used to determine relief (see contour), route surveying, mine surveying, construction surveying; or according to the method used, e.g., transit surveying, plane-table surveying, and photogrammetic surveying (securing data by photographs).
Surveys based on photographs are especially useful in rugged or inaccessible country and for reconnaissance surveys for construction, mapping, or military purposes.

Boundary survey: The actual positions of existing marks on land (typically iron rods or concrete monuments in the ground, but also tacks in trees, pipes, and manholes) are measured, and a map is drawn from the data.
Subdivision plat: Given a survey of a parcel of land, lines are drawn inside it, indicating where roads and lots are.

Surveying is the art and science of accurately determining the position of points and the distances between them.
Surveying has been an essential element in the development of the human environment since the beginning of recorded history and it is a requirement in the planning and execution of nearly every form of construction.
Modern surveying utilizes an instrument called a total station, a small telescope equipped with an electronic distance-measuring device (EDMD) and set up on a tripod, although the modern use of satellite positioning systems, such as a Global Positioning System (GPS), is also well established, with the robotic total station becoming widely used.

In U.S. land surveying, a section is an area nominally one mile square, containing 640 acres (2.6 km²).
Sections are customarily surveyed in halves and quarters, and further subdivision in halves and quarters is common.
The importance of "sections" was greatly enhanced by the passage of "An Ordinance for ascertaining the mode of disposing of lands in the Western Territory" of 1785 by the U.S. Congress (see Land Ordinance of 1785).

 Cave Surveying & Mapping
Without an accurate survey any resulting map will be suspect and of limited use for determining the relationship of the cave to surface landforms or other caves.
Surveying is usually done by a team of three or four people, each performing a specific role.
Most survey teams are glad to take along a novice surveyor as long as they posses the basic caving skills required for the survey trip.

 Cave Surveying Notes
The effect on a survey of a systematic compass error is to rotate the whole survey by the error.
Unfortunately, surveys are still as subject to error as ever they were and it is useful to use that computing power to detect gross errors and distribute the random error corrections around loops.
The solution both for the survey leg weighting in the initial least squares analysis and for the eventual distribution of the error along the traverse is to form an estimate of the standard deviation of the errors associated with each leg.

 SCO Web: Surveying Introduction
Surveying is a meld of science, art, and measurement technology used to determine and record the relative positions of points on (or above or below) the earth's surface.
Surveying can involve anything from determining the position of a single point, to establishing the boundary between adjacent land parcels, to mapping the terrain in a stream valley, to modeling the size and shape of the entire earth.
Surveying is done by a variety of people with various skills and backgrounds and utilizing a range of equipment and methods.

 Mollenhauer Group: Services - Construction Surveying
Construction surveying is the process of translating construction plans into physical points on the ground that are used as a basis for the actual construction.
This type of surveying operates in all three dimensions, providing not only the horizontal location of new improvements, but also the vertical information required to ensure that surfaces will drain or that pipes will flow as required.
The results of construction surveying can be seen everywhere – virtually all buildings, roadways, and other man-made improvements involve some amount of construction surveying.

 Basic Theories of Surveying   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Surveying has been traditionally defined as the science of measuring and mapping relative positions above, on or under the surface of the ground, or establishing such positions from a technical plan or title description.
For most surveying projects, the curvature of the earth is slight enough that the effects can be ignored, greatly simplifying the calculations involved.
Assuming that plane surveying is acceptable for a particular scope of work, the surveyor's measurements are typically gathered with a theodolite, an instrument that is set up over a recoverable point.
