- 2. • A Compass is an instrument containing a magnetized pointer which shows the direction of magnetic north and bearings from it. What is Compass? Types of Compass: • Prismatic Compass • Surveyor’s Compass • A Prismatic compass is a navigation and surveying instrument which is extensively used for determining course, waypoints and direction, and for calculating bearings of survey lines and included angles between them. • A Surveyor's compass, is an instrument used in surveying to measure horizontal angles. It was superseded by the theodolite in the early 19th century.

The Graduated ring and needle are free to move independently wrt each other Graduated ring remains stationary while box is prism and object vane rotates as the ring attach with needle is not attach with the box Graduated ring rotates with rotation of box ,eye vane & object vane as the ring is attach with the box of the compass & only needle remains stationary Prism is provided to take reading The graduated ring is graduated with ejected figures and no prism is provided to take the reading Graduation are marked 0 to 360 in clockwise direction Graduations are marked 0 to 90 in each quadrant Tripoid may or may not be provided. The instrument cannot be used without tripoid It measures or gives WCB of a line It measures or gives Q.B. of a line.
- 5. Compass Surveying • Chain Surveying can be used when the Area to be surveyed is comparatively small and is fairly flat. • But when the area is large, undulated and crowded with many details, triangulation(which is the principle of chain survey) is not possible. In such an area, the method of traversing is adopted.
- 6. Principle of Compass Surveying: • The Principle of compass survey is Traversing; which involves a series of connected lines the magnetic bearing of the lines are measured by prismatic compass and the distance (lengths) are measured by chain. • Such survey does not require the formulation of a network of triangle. • Compass surveying is recommended when the area is large, undulating and crowded with many details. • Compass surveying is not recommended for areas where local attraction is suspected due to the presence of magnetic substances like steel structures, iron ore deposits, electric cables conveying currents.
- 7. • In traversing , the frame work consist of connected lines. • The length are measured by a chain or a tape and the direction measured by angle measuring instruments. • Hence in compass surveying direction of survey lines are determined with a compass and the length of the lines are measured with a tape or a chain. This process is known as compass traversing. Traversing
- 8. Types of Bearing:- The bearing of a line is the horizontal angle which it makes with a reference line(meridian). there are four type of bearings :- 1) True Bearing: The true bearing of a line is the horizontal angle between the true meridian and the survey line. The true bearing is measured from the true north in the clockwise direction. 2) Magnetic Bearing: the magnetic bearing of a line is the horizontal angle which the line makes with the magnetic north. 3) Grid Bearing: The grid bearing of a line is the horizontal angle which the line makes with the grid meridian. 4) Arbitrary Bearing: The arbitrary baring of a line is the horizontal angle which the line makes with the arbitrary meridian.
- 10. The bearing are designated in the following two system:- 1) Whole Circle Bearing System.(W.C.B) 2) Quadrantal Bearing System.(Q.B) Measurement of Bearings :
- 11. • The bearing of a line measured with respect to magnetic meridian in clockwise direction is called magnetic bearing and its value varies between 0ᴼ to 360ᴼ. • The quadrant start from north an progress in a clockwise direction as the first quadrant is 0ᴼ to 90ᴼ in clockwise direction , 2nd 90ᴼ to 180ᴼ , 3rd 180ᴼ to 270ᴼ, and up to 360ᴼ is 4th one. Whole Circle Bearing System.(W.C.B) • In this system, the bearing of survey lines are measured wrt to north line or south line which ever is the nearest to the given survey line and either in clockwise direction or in anti clockwise direction Quadrantal bearing system(Q.B.)
- 12. • When the whole circle bearing is converted into Quadrantal bearing , it is termed as “REDUCED BEARING”. Thus , the reduced bearing is similar to the Quadrantal bearing. • Its values lies between 0ᴼ to 90ᴼ, but the quadrant should be mentioned for proper designation. Reduced bearing (R.B) W.C.B OF ANY LINE QUADRANT IN WHICH IT LIES RULES FOR CONVERSION QUADRANT 0 TO 90 I RB=WCB N-E 90 TO 180 II RB=180-WCB S-E 180 TO 270 III RB =WCB-180ᴼ S-W 270 TO 360 IV RB=360ᴼ - WCB N-W
- 13. Fore bearing and Back bearing The bearing of a line measured in the forward direction of the survey lines is called the ‘fore bearing’(F.B.) of that line. The bearing of a line measured in direction backward to the direction of the progress of survey is called the ‘back bearing’(B.B.) of the line.
- 14. Types of Meridians: •Magnetic meridian :- The direction shown by a freely suspended needle which is magnetised and balanced properly without influenced by other factors is known as magnetic meridian •True meridian :- True meridian is the line which passage through the true north and south. The true meridian at any point can be determinate by either observing the bearing of the sun at 12 noon or by sun’s shadow. •Arbitrary meridian :- In case of small work or in places were true meridian or magnetic meridian cannot be determined, then any direction of prominent object is taken as a reference direction called as arbitrary meridian.
