LINECIRCLE INTERSECTION Surveying Engineering Department Ferris State University INTRODUCTION There are three relationships within coordinate geometry that can exist between a line and a circle They can intersect at one or two points or they will not intersect Ifthere is only one intersection then the line must be tangent to the circle at that point of intersection To nd where the intersection exists one can use either the solution of two equations or by the triangle method To solve the problem in a simple mode one can solve for the equation of a line and the equation of the circle simultaneously Since the equation of a circle is a seconddegree equation the solution is through the quadratic equation The development of the solution by simultaneous equations begins by writing the equation of the line and circle in the following forms Hashimi 1988 y y1 mx x1 gtymx x1y1 R2 x h2 y k2 where x and y are the coordinates of the point of intersection x1 and y1 are the coordinates of a point on the line h and k are the translation between the center of the circle and the origin of the coordinate system in the x and y directions respectively m is the slope ofthe line As a reminder the slope is the cotangent of the azimuth of the line Write the equation of the line and expand the equation by taking the squares and equating the equation to zero x h2 y k2 R2 0 1 x2 2hxh2 y2 2kyk2

TRAVERSIN G AND TRAVERSE ADJUSTMENTS Surveying Engineering Department Ferris State University Introduction Control surveying is that part of surveying in which high precision instruments and techniques are employed to locate points for subsequent surveying operations Because it is used as a base for further work it needs to be performed with more care and greater accuracy Control is used for many purposes Photogrammetry and topographic mapping require control as does construction layout Control provides the basic framework of coordinates required for many other surveying applications The basis for evaluation of errors and corrections is based on a very simple relationship T R C WhereT the true value R the recorded eld value C the correction to be applied to the eld measurement What we see is that the correction term is always added to the recorded value The correction term could be either positive or negative It should be recognized that the error E has the same magnitude as the correction but with opposite sign Thus E C The error can be expressed as ER7T This formula states that the error is equal to the difference between the recorded value and the true value The true value is always subtracted from the measured field recorded value Since the true value is never really known it is usually approximated by some value such as the mean Kinds of Traverse There are a number of different kinds of traverses employed in surveying They include de ectionangle traverse interior angle traverse exterior angle traverse and a traverse where all the angles are measured to the right as one would experience with a directional theodolitel Each has its own geometry from which the angular error of closure can be computed 1 Conceptually one could also have all angles measured to the left although there are no instruments I know that measures angles just to the left SURE 215 7 Surveyng Calculations Traversing and Traverse Adjustment Page 2 De ection Angle Traverse The de ectionangle traverse gure 1 is primarily used in route surveys such a highways One can see that the measured angle is that formed from the prolonged backsight line from the last station to the line in the direction of next point The direction left or right from the prolonged line is a necessary part of the angle The general form from the geometry states that 140 103900 R 0L1 49 303900 R 0L2

traverse adjustment only a couple of which will be discussed here The first method is called the Compass Rule or Bowditch Method named after Nathaniel Bowditch3 see gure 5 who devised this method of adjustment 2 The arctangent function requires some thought in its application In order to determine the proper quadrant one must evaluate the sign of the numerator and denominator If both the numerator and denominator are positive then the azimuth is the in the northeast quadrant and 3c is the value returned from the calculator If the signs are both negative 3 will still be positive and the proper quadrant is in the southwest Therefore add the angle returned from the calculator to 180 In this example the calculator will show an angular value of 23 04 50 Add 180 to place it in the proper quadrant and the correct azimuth becomes 203 04 50 If the numerator is positive and the denominator is negative 3 will be a negative angle In this particular case the proper quadrant is the southeast Therefore add the angle to 180 and the result should fall between 90 and 180 Finally when the numerator is negative and the denominator is positive then the azimuth of the line is in the northwest quadrant The angle displayed in the calculator should be a negative value Add this angle to 360 to obtain the proper azimuth The value should fall between 270 and 360 3 Nathaniel Bowditch

up to zero for a closed loop traverse Once the latitudes and departures have been adjusted the surveyor may want to determine the coordinates of each point along the traverse Given the Xcoordinate of a point at one end of the line the Xcoordinate of the point of the other end is found by adding the departure from the first to second point to the Xcoordinate of the rst point In a similar fashion

this case For a closed loop traverse this coordinate must agree with the coordinates of the rst point This provides a check on the calculations Ifthe traverse is a closed traverse but not a closed

Crandall Method The third method of traverse adjustment is based on the method developed by Charles L Crandall and referred to as the Crandall Method Crandall based his development on least squares and assumed that after the angular error is accounted for that the random SURE 215 7 Surveyng Calculations Traversing and Traverse Adjustment Page 18 errors remaining were attributed to the distances

Traversing and Traverse Adjustment Page 20 that any of the adjustment techniques will have similar results although one cannot state that this level of agreement will occur with all traverses Area Calculations Once the traverse has been adjusted the area is normally calculated assuming that the traverse is a closed polygon The area of a polygon can be computed using the basic geometry for computing the area of a trapezoid gure 6 The area is simply the average height times the width h1 h2 W Figure 6 Area ofa trapezoid h1h2 Area r w SURE 215 7 Surveyng Calculations Traversing and Traverse Adjustment Page 21 The double area is then written as 2A h1 h2 w There are two basic methods of computing the area of a polygon Double Meridian Distance DMD or by coordinates Both methods will give identical results Referring to gure 5 the area by Double Meridian Distance is based on the area of a series of trapezoids Draw a meridian through the left most point in the traverse and then draw lines perpendicular to that meridian line to each of the other points in the traverses The width of the trapezoid is designated as the distance along the meridian the latitude of the line while the heights are the perpendicular distances from the meridian to the traverse point departures of the line Thus from gure 5 the double area of traverse l 234 5 is found as follows 2A 2A 2A33394439

line from P to C is extended until it intersects the circle at a point labeled H This point is called the Collins Auxiliary Point Figure 3 Three point resection problem using the Collins method e 9e

Coordinate Systems and the Three Point Problem The Canadian Surveyor XII8508518 MISSING DATA IN A POLYGON Surveying Engineering Department Ferris State University COMPUTING MISSING DATA USING THE GEOMETRIC APPROACH The conventional approach of solving the missing data problem is shown in gure 1 On the left is the traverse as it exists in the eld But two data items are missing Depending on the situation a combination of two items given from s1 sz on or 0c are unknown Then one simply draws the sides of the traverse which are known Then the unknown lines are grouped together Thus the traverse consists of an open traverse with line numbers 12 14 and 15 drawn in a group The coordinates of points A and C are computed by processing this open traverse Then the distance and directions between A and C can be computed and the triangle composed of AB C is computed using coordinate geometry There are three basic forms in which the missing data problem can be formulated An example from Hashimi 1988 is shown for each case A Traverse Station Olt Azimuth of line 3 Distance of line By B Line number E D39 S DE a DE D Figure 1 Traverse showing missing elements 1 Missing the distance and direction of the same line This problem is very simple to solve Determine the X and Y coordinates of each of the points in the traverse This usually means starting at one known point and going both clockwise and counterclockwise until the unknown line is reached Once the coordinates are found inverse between them to nd the distance and direction of the line SURE 215 7 Surveying Calculations Missing Data

E The last case involves 2 unknown distances or directions on two nonadjacent lines or an unknown distance on one line and an unknown direction on another non adjacent line The conventional approach is one of reconstruction of the problem For example Hashimi 1988 gives the following shown in gure 3 and the accompanying table SURE 215 7 Surveying Calculations Missing Data in a Polygon Page 4 STA

from a polygon can be computed there are alternatives Root 1970 suggests another approach by exploiting the condition that in a closed loop traverse the sum of the latitudes and departures must both equal zero From this two equations can be written with two unknowns These equations are solved simultaneously The unknowns can be classi ed into three different categories Category 1 is the situation where the two unknowns are both lengths of the traverse The following two equations can be written D1 sinAz1 D2 sinAz2 AX 0 1 D1 cosAz1 D2 cosAz2 Ay 0 where D is the distance between two points Azi is the azimuth of the line 1 and 2 indicates the lines with the unknown parameters and AX and Ay are the sums of the departures and latitudes of the known lengths respectively In the rst scenario the lengths are unknown This means that D1 and D2 are the unknown values Rearrange the second equation in 1 so that Ay D1 cosAz1 cosAz2 D 2 SURE 215 7 Surveying Calculations Missing Data in a Polygon Page

4402596 LINELINE INTERSECTION Surveying Engineering Department Ferris State University Introduction A common problem in surveying is the solution of a problem using coordinate geometry This is the basis of computing latitude and departure and the inverse relationships of distance and azimuth that were discussed in the last section Now we shall move our attention to other forms of coordinate geometry mainly how to determine the location of a point of intersection between two lines a line and a circle and two circles Equation of a line The slope of a line m can be given by the following relationship found in analytical geometry gure 1 Y 0 Figure 1 Basic relationship for equation of a line mtan9 where 9 is the angle measured from the XaXis In surveying we often use the azimuth or bearing designated as 0L Then tan 9 cot900 9 cot 0L Thus from the surveying perspective the slope is written as rise m cot X run SURE 215 7 Surveying Calculations LineLine Intersection Page 2 From basic trigonometry one can also easily see that 1 run 1 tan X cot 0L r157 rlse run To write the equation of the line one needs two items either the coordinates of two points on the line X1 Y1 and X2 Y2 or the coordinates of one point on the line and the slope of the line We should easily recognize that the ratios of differences in coordinates between all points on a straight line are equal The differences are always taken from the same point Lets look at a very simple line whose azimuth is 45 We know that if X 1 unit then y 1 unit if X 2 units then y 2 units if X 150 units then y 150 units etc Lets identify three points on the line y1 1 y 2 and y3 3 units respectively The X coordinates are then X1 1 X2 2 and X3 3 units respectively Then 373 371 312X3X1 372 371 21 1 X2X1 This will be valid for all lines Again for simplicity lets look at a line whose run is twice the rise X 2y The appr0Ximate azimuth ofthis line is 630 26 06 If y1 1 then X1 2 if y 2 then X2 4 if y3 3 then X3 6 etc Then using the same relationship as above 2i 2 X2 X1 Therefore we can write this general equation given two points on the line with the third point being unknown Rearranging yY1X2 X1XX1yZ Y1 YX2

this value for X into the second equation 12 y 330y200 15y 3630y200 15yl6 16 y d 5 Next solve for X by substituting the value of y into either equation and check the results EXample Find the

ambiguous case since there could be more than 1 intersection Actually four situations are possible In gure 5 an acute angle 06 measured from the xaxis sets off point C with respect to A The distances a and b are given In 5a we can see that only one intersection occurs and because the arc is tangent to the xaxis a right triangle is formed From trigonometry one can see that if a b sin 1 then only one triangle exists If bsin X gt a as shown in 5b then no intersection can exist If bsin 1 lt athen two intersections exist Finally if a gt b then 5c is formed and if a 2 b then 5d occurs Figure 5

application For a rectangular gure the process is pretty straightforward Unfortunately the process becomes a little more complex for irregular gures This paper will look at the problem from a number of view points First the problem of dividing a quadrilateral will be discussed Then a gure with more than four sides will be presented and nally how to divide a polygons with a curved side will be shown Division is usually performed by Anderson and Mikhail 1998 Mof tt and Bossler 1998 I Dividing the parcel with a line whose direction is known such as parallel to another line within the traverse I Dividing the parcel with a line from a given starting points on the perimeter of the polygon SUBDIVIDING A QUADRILATERAL Stoughton 1986 presents an excellent overview of subdividing a quadrilateral He has identi ed six different cases on how the subdivision can be computed Figure 1 shows the general polygon that will be used to develop the theory Stoughton presented in his paper The original parcel is de ned by points A B C and D whereas the ends of the dividing line are represented by points E and F B E Parcel A Parcel B Figure 1 General form of quadrilateral used in developing area partitioning theory SURE 215 7 Surveyng Calculations Area Partitioning Page 110 Case I is the simplest case Here lines BC and AD are parallel to each other and the dividing line EF is parallel to one

area of parcel A is then defined as DMD A BEh 2 Solving for the unknown distance DBE gives us 1 Note that the value for the distance DAF does come out as a negative number in this calculation

Mikhail 1998 Lets rst take a look at the rst case where the line is of a known direction Figure 11 shows an example polygon with 6 sides The problem is to divide the main polygon into two polygons of equal area using a line that is parallel to line AF This is depicted as line H1 in the gure The solution can be broken down to four main steps 1 First compute the area of the entire polygon 2 Draw a

gures would result in a much closer value to the true half area desired This result is well within the signi cant gures for the example The next example is to divide the polygon using a de ned point on the edge of the polygon For example gure 12 shows the same polygon except that this time the division will be made at point G on the line FA G is located midway between F and A although it could be any distance Again the example is to divide the area into two equal areas The solution is as follows Hashimi 1988 1 Compute the area of the polygon ABCDEF 2 Compute the azimuth and length from the division point to another point on the opposite side of the polygon In this case we compute these values for line CG 3 Compute the area of the quadrilateral ABCG A Figure 12 Example area partitioning

results Example Using the same values as in the previous example we will divide the original polygon into two equalarea polygons from point G The distance GA can be computed as half the distance between F and A The azimuth and distance for line CG is found by adding up the latitudes and departures of lines GA AB and BC Since this is a closed gure the latitude and departure of line C must have

feet is due to roundoff errors Direct Division of Polygon Using Coordinates The problem with the preceding approaches where an initial guess is made of where the dividing line occurs is that the problem changes with different polygon figures Danial 1984 presents an approach using coordinates where the dividing line is computed directly Looking at figure 13 we can write the area using

13 Geometry for computing the area of a polygon 2A X1 X2Y1 Y2X2 X3Y2 Y3X3 X4Y3 Y4X4 X1Y4 Y1 As we know if the area results in a negative value the negative sign is neglected because area cannot be less than zero The reason for the negative sign exists is because of the order in which points are selected But in area partitioning it is necessary to retain the sign to ensure that the correct results are found Danial 1984 If the polygon area is computed clockwise then the area must be represented as a negative value For an nsided polygon the double area can be computed using the general

value for w Compute the distance of the dividing line DEF Compute the chord distance AEchord Compute p and Aseg Compute a new value for w Compare it to the current estimate of w Repeat steps 36 until the difference between the current estimate of w and the computed value is within the tolerance established for the calculation QMr39eP Nt CASE 2 Figure 21 shows the geometry when the dividing line EF is not parallel to AD A line AD is constructed parallel to the dividing line EF The angle between AD and AD is referred to as the offset angle and is designated as 5 For the figure AEFD use the same approach as presented for Case 1 Angle BAD is equal to 900 A2 What remains to be done is the computation of the area ADD Using the sine law the distances DDD and DAD are computed as follows DAD sm5

area used in the calculations is the area from AEED plus the area ADD if 5 lies to the left of AD minus if on the right The process is iterated as before CASE 3 In Case 3 the dividing line is xed through point F distance DF is given It is also assumed that the other end of the dividing line lies on the arc ABArc The lines AD and OJ are constructed to be parallel to the dividing line EF The

two values for 5 must be selected 51 and 52 such that the corresponding f51 and f52 from the relationships for f5 have opposite signs Then SURE 215 7 Surveyng Calculations Area Partitioning Page 173 A new value for 51 is then found using the test if f53 has the o posite sign of f51 then 51 53 This process is continued until 52 51 I S 81 and f53 S 82 where 81 and 82 are the tolerances established

DAD instead of DAD Determine p Determine the area Aseg Calculate f5 pW QP39HeP Nf Steps 19 are performed rst with 5 51 and then with 5 52 The equation for 53 is then applied and the appropriate changes are made to either 51 or 52 and the process is repeated until the solution converges CASE 4 This case is very simple because the point is xed on the curve Because of that the distances DEF and
