This was my final year project for my Civil Engineering degree at Loughborough University. I created a computer program to plot surveying data measured with a total station (a digital measuring tool on a tripod) on Google Earth.
The program transformed data captured in local coordinate systems to the global coordinate system WGS84.
I wrote a dissertation and journal paper about the project. They discussed the development of the program, the accuracy of the aerial imagery used in Google Earth, and the accuracy of the Helmert transformation used by the program.
