A survey control system for the Province of New Brunswick is established by tellurometer and geodimeter traverses. The cost per station for monumentation, survey, and electronic computation of coordinates was $78.70. Approximately 500 stations are established per year during the field season of 4 months. The relative accuracy for tellurometer traverses with stations 5 miles to 10 miles apart is 1:65000. The precision for geodimeter traverses with stations 0.5 mile to 2 miles apart is 1:38000. Coordinate control surveys by electronic instruments are therefore more economical and more accurate than previous methods.
