Intermediate Sight


When levelling, any measurement which isn’t a back sight or fore sight is known as an intermediate sight.

Technical Information

When surveying a concrete floor, multiple reference grid points will be in range of the optical sight at any time.

For the efficient use of the surveying operatives’ time, as many intermediate sights as possible must be taken, while maintaining suitable accuracy, before the optical level is moved. This minimises the number of times that the optical level is moved reduces the time spent setting it up and taking repeat readings (fore sights and back sights).
