Surveying: Principles and Applications, Eighth Editionpresents a clear discussion of the latest advances in technological instrumentation, surveying principles, and applications for mapping and engineering surveys. It has a good selection of problems that illuminate and reinforce concepts, as well as providing up-to-date information on the latest technological innovations. Real-world emphasis is key to the continued success of this text and the success a student has in understanding surveying concepts #x13; so real world, in fact, that it is often carried by graduates into their first day of work. Suitable for construction, civil technology, civil engineering programs, and general surveying.

Author Biography

Mr. Kavanagh's education and professional  backgrounds include a B.A. (Economics) from York University (Toronto) in 1970 and certification through the challenge exam process as a Civil Engineering Technologist (Ontario), and as a Survey Technologist (Ontario). His surveying  experience includes seventeen years of  highway, legal and construction surveys as well as the management of municipal surveys for pre-engineering, design, and construction of municipal services for the City of Scarborough.           


Mr. Kavanagh's teaching experience began in 1969 at Seneca College where he designed and taught courses in surveying, computerized/advanced surveying, municipal services design and highway design. In addition he served as Chair of the Civil/Resources Engineering Technology Department (1987-1990), which at its peak had 400 students and 20 faculty. 


In 1983, along with S.J.G Bird (deceased 1989), he wrote a textbook on surveying (Surveying Principles and Applications)  and in 1989, he wrote a second text (Surveying with Construction Applications). Both texts, published by Pearson Education/Prentice Hall Inc., USA, have been adopted for use in Civil Engineering programs and Civil Engineering Technology programs in the U.S.A., with wide use also in Canada and some off-shore locations (for example, Singapore, & U.K.).  Additionally, in 2003 he wrote the text Geomatics, for post-secondary Geomatics programs.


Mr. Kavanagh is presently (May, 2008) working on the 8th edition of Surveying Principles and Applications and on the 7th edition of Surveying with Construction Applications.
