An attachment to an alidade consisting of a stadia arc on the outer edge of the visual vertical arc; enables the observer to determine the difference in elevation of. Read the stadia intercept first, then sight anywhere on the rod and record the reading. 1 1. As an alternative, an auxiliary scale, the Beaman stadia arc, can be. A specially graduated arc attached to the vertical circle of an alidade or transit to simplify computing elevation difference for inclined stadia sights.

It has a new rendering engine that is built to be compatible with how the web is written staxia. Please contact me if you have questions. A parallel of altitude is a circle of the celestial sphere parallel to the horizon, connecting all points of equal altitude. Plane table, alidade, and wye level – as a set. Surveyors Plane Table. The arc is so graduated that each division on the arc is equal stdia 0. After interpolation, or if determined by calculation, mechanical device, or graphics, it is called computed altitude.

I am not an a surveyor but the item seems to be in working order. Another method involves using carrier phase measurements and resolving the interger errors leading to cm accuracy.

The arc of a vertical circle between the horizon and a point on the celestial sphere, measured upward from the horizon. All screw adjustments and focus rings seem to work fine. The altitude of a celestial body on the celes- tial meridian is called meridian altitude. The expression ex- meridian altitude is applied to the altitude of a celestial body near the celestial meridian, to which a correction is to be applied to deter- mine the meridian altitude.


Payment within 7 days required, please and thank you. A specially graduated arc attached to the vertical circle of an alidade or transit to simplify the computation of elevation differences for inclined stadia sights without the use of vertical angles. Check out the FAQ! An altitude taken directly from a table, before interpolation, is called tabulated altitude.

A giant foot 6. A method of measuring distances by noting the intercepts on a stadia board, made by the stadia wires in the telescope of a surveyor’s transit. Resolution in range is the minimum range difference between separate targets at the same bearing which will allow both to appear separately; Resolution in bearing is the minimum horizontal angular separation between two targets at the same range which will allow both to appear separately.

On ships an Alidade is used to measure the angle from the ship’s longitudinal axis to some target or targets, typically to help determine the ships position relative to the target s. Altitude indicated by a sextant is called sextant altitude. If this item contains incorrect or inappropriate information please contact us here to flag it for review.
