|dc.description.abstract||Only two geodetic EDM instruments are considered
namely the Telltirometer and Geodimeter; exemplifying
microwave and electro-optical equipment respectively.
After outlining the development and design arid
operating principles of both instruments, their
calibrations are examined.
Suitable instruments, base lines and observing
techniques to be used in calibration are considered.
The effects of lack of calibration are emphasized
throughout and the study is illustrated with
experiments which were carried out by the author
aridothers in Sweden.
Finally the study is summed up with conclusions and recommendations.||en
