What is the difference between route and polar surveys?

When surveying is made from one point – this is a polar survey, and when a survey of the area is carried out while moving along a route – this is a route survey.

Polar Route
1. Survey is carried out using a tablet, compass, sighting ruler, compass-measuring, pencil.

2. Select a scale, taking into account the size of the terrain and the size of the sheet.

3. Orientate the tablet so that C (north) on the compass coincides with the north end of its magnetic needle, which should be parallel to the edge of the tablet.

4. Using a straight line, measure directions and distances around the object’s circumference.

5. Select and mark a vantage point on paper.

6. Draw direction lines on the objects on the paper.

7. Mark the distance.

8. Designate geographic objects with conventional signs

5. Mark the starting point.

6. Break the entire path into sections, taking into account all the turns.

7. Mark each section of the path on the tablet, as in polar survey.

8. Mark all visible objects with conventional symbols
