Tellurometer Use in Control Surveys for Mapping by Photogrammetric Methods CARL C. WINKKA, Controls Engineer, Photogrammetry and Mapping Division, Arizona Highway Department Results of use of the Tellurometer in control surveys for mapping by photogrammetric methods for highway survey purposes over a wide range of temperature and. began a period of testing and evaluation of the Tellurometer for making control surveys relevant to highway surveys and design. The contents of this paper are based on 18 months of field operations completed in October Most engineers are familiar with angle and distance measuring in making traverse surveys. tellurometer use in control surveys for mapping by photogrammetric methods. results of use of the tellurometer in control surveys for mapping by photogrammetric methods for highway survey purposes over a wide range of temperature and humidity, over a variety of topography with various types and intensities of ground cover, and away from and near traffic, are reported.
It is now more than 50 years since the survey world was startled and revolutionised by the invention of the Tellurometer by Trevor Lloyd Wadley. A new book ” Trevor Lloyd Wadley – Genius of the Tellurometer” provides a look at the character of the inventor and outlines the circumstances under which the invention was born. The Tellurometer operated on a radiowave which could penetrate most weather conditions and achieved distances up to miles. Since the early s any long distance that was required to be measured as accurately as possible, e.g. a survey baseline, was determined using long tapes or . Surveys of Canada. He visited Cape Town to see the prototype and on the strength of that visit placed an order for the first six production receivers. The name Tellurometer was selected and the production facility of Tellurometer (PTY) Limited was set-up at Plumstead in Cape Town There were initial difficulties because of ground swing. The “TELLUROMETER” System of Distance Measurement is primarily designed to meet the requirements of Geodetic accuracy over useful Geodetic distances. It may, however, be used for any measurement purposes for which its characteristics make it suitable. Article Metrics Views 7.
The tellurometer design yields high accuracy distance measurements over geodetic distances, but it is also useful for second order survey work, especially in areas where the terrain is rough and/or the temperatures extreme. Examples of remote locations mapped using Tellurometer surveys are Adams Bluff, Churchill Mountains, Cook Mountains, Jacobsen Glacier, Mount Albright, Mount Predoehl, .

The Tellurometer design yields high-accuracy distance measurements over geodetic distances, but is also useful for second order survey work, especially where the terrain is rough and temperatures extreme. Subsequent versions had unique applications and improvements.
