Relating to the Measurement of the Earth's Surface

p. 76 related to the science of earth measurement (geodesy).

of or relating to or determined by geodesy

Basic relationship of the earth to the curvature of its sea level surface.

ln general refers to information that involves measurements of earth's size and shape, particularly topological (mapping) features.

Referring to the determination of the size and shape of the earth and the precise location of points on its surface.

The shortest possible line be drawn from one point of a surface to another, its plane of curvature is everywhere perpendicular to the surface. Such a curve is called a Geodetic line. from the New York Times Literary Supplement November 6, 1959 p.5: With his geodetic domes and his synergetic geometry.. [Buckminster Fuller] is designing..methods of enclosing space that others may one day make into an architecture.

related to the measurement of large portions of the earth's surface that takes into account the curvature, shape and dimensions of the earth.
