NASA Connect Segment explaining surveying and how surveyors use geometry.


Here's a surveying related video made by NASA for it's NASA Connect series that explains basic land surveying methods and use of geometry. Although the video is geared towards children to show the real-life use of geometry and is a limited demonstration as to what surveyors do, I think it does a good job in showing how land surveyors use geometry and surveying equipment to carry out a simple (at least to us) task of laying out something, like a football field.

I rate this video 2 RODS out of a total possible 4 RODS.
