      Least squares adjustment can be defined, as “a model for the solution of an overdetermined system of equations based on the principle of least squares of observation residuals.” For surveyors, “overdetermined systems” are the networks of related coordinates used to establish boundaries, locate points on Earth, facilitate large. 9. LEAST SQUARES RESECTION In the case of four or more observed directions to known points, the method of least squares (least squares adjustment of indirect observations) may be employed to obtain the best estimates of the coordinates of the resected point. This technique requires the formation of aFile Size: KB.

    This book describes how errors are identified, analyzed, measured, and corrected, with a focus on least squares adjustment—the most rigorous methodology available.   The theory is illustrated by means of a numerical example, which demonstrates that the adjustment may also be carried out on a desk calculator without undue expenditure of time or space. Comparisons are made between the Least Squares method suggested and the Bowditch by: 3.

    The method of least squares is a standard approach in regression analysis to approximate the solution of overdetermined systems (sets of equations in which there are more equations than unknowns) by minimizing the sum of the squares of the residuals made in the results of every single equation.. The most important application is in data best fit in the least-squares . The Method of Least Squares is a procedure to determine the best fit line to data; the proof uses simple calculus and linear algebra. The basic problem is to find the best fit straight line y = ax + b given that, for n 2 f1;;Ng, the pairs (xn;yn) are observed. The method easily generalizes to finding the best fit of the form.

The adjustment of observations by the method of least squares. The term adjustment is one in popular usage but it does not have any proper statistical meaning. A better term is ‘least squares estimation’ since nothing, especially observations, are actually adjusted.

LS is the conventional technique for adjusting surveying measurements. The LS technique minimizes the sum of the squares of differences between the observation and estimate [3].

Apart from LS other methods of adjusting surveying methods File Size: 1MB. Least squares method is considered one of the best and common methods of adjustment computations when we have redundant observations or an overdetermined system of equations.

The term least squares means that the global solution minimizes the sum of the squares of the residuals made on the results of every single equation.
