Four

### When is a traverse said to be balanced?

When corrections to latitudes and departures are equal

### What are traverse surveys directed for?

Property surveys, underground surveys, and surveys for long narrow strips of land

### What are the two main types of traverse commonly employed in the field of surveying?

Open and closed traverse

### In closed traverse surveys, what type of areas are often surveyed using this method?

Boundaries of ponds, sports grounds, forests, etc.

### How many different methods can be used for traversing?

Four (4) different methods

### How are latitude and departure defined in traverse surveys?

Latitude is measured parallel to the reference meridian (north-south branch) and departure is perpendicular to the reference meridian.

### What are easting and northing in the context of traverse surveys?

Easting is the distance measured eastward (x-coordinate) and northing is the distance measured northward (y-coordinate).

### When is a traverse said to be balanced?

When corrections to latitudes and departures are applied.

Equal to zero

### What are the perpendicular distances of a point from the two reference axes in traverse surveys?

Easting and northing

### What principles should be applied to close a traverse?

The algebraic sum of latitudes and departures must be equal to zero.
