Description: This workshop will discuss errors that occur in all surveying measurements and how to determine what they are. Error budgets and error propagation will be introduced, especially error propagation in more advanced applications, such as GNSS, GIS, photogrammetry. This workshop is important to help practitioners understand the error model that is required for successful use of least squares adjustment.
