Geodesy made easy--an accessible introduction to a rapidly changing field

Topics include:
* Traditional survey positioning techniques
* Geodetic systems, including horizontal and vertical geodetic datums
* Physical geodesy
* The world geodetic system
* Satellite geodesy
* The Global Positioning System
* Gravity measures
* Electromagnetic distance measurement
