Height calculation from levelling


Line and area levelling
In contrast to line levelling, in area levelling all new points are measured from a single instrument position. They can be entered in the form as intermediate sights (i). A benchmark with a known height serves as a reference, which must be entered as a backsight. To check whether the height of the levelling device was accidentally changed during the measurement of the new points or whether the benchmark was read off incorrectly or inaccurately, the benchmark can be measured again at the end of the measurement (this time as a foresight). Example 3 shows a corresponding measurement. A misclosure of 1 mm was detected here.
