2.15 Height differences

A set of observed leveling height differences is described using the start-end tag <height-differences> without parameters. The <height-differences> tag can contain a series of height differences (at least one) and can optionally be supplied with a variance-covariance matrix. Single height differences are defined with empty tags <dh /> having the following attributes:

If the value of standard deviation is not present and length of leveling section (in kilometres) is defined, the value of standard deviation is computed from the formula

m_dh = m_0 sqrt(D_km)

If the value of standard deviation of the height difference is defined, information on leveling section length is ignored. A third possibility is to define a common variance-covariance matrix for all elevations in the set.

Example

 
<height-differences>
  <dh from="A" to="B" val=" 25.42" dist="18.1" />
  <dh from="B" to="C" val=" 10.34" dist=" 9.4" />
  <dh from="C" to="A" val="-35.20" dist="14.2" />
  <dh from="B" to="D" val="-15.54" dist="17.6" />
  <dh from="D" to="E" val=" 21.32" dist="13.5" />
  <dh from="E" to="C" val="  4.82" dist=" 9.9" />
  <dh from="E" to="A" val="-31.02" dist="13.8" />
  <dh from="C" to="D" val="-26.11" dist="14.0" />
</height-differences>
