This section contains the simpler tools used in surveying. Most sophisticated is perhaps the 1953 Wild K2 Alidade for use on a plane table. Apart from a clinometer that was especially built for the Eastern Scheldt Storm Surge Barrier the other tools are means for measuring lengths, like steel tapes, measuring rods and chains.
If you have any questions and/or remarks please let me know.
