Differential Levelling

Differential leveling is a technique used to determine differences in elevation between points that are remote from each other. Differential leveling requires the use of a surveyor’s level together with graduated measuring rods. An elevation is a vertical distance above or below a referenced datum. In surveying, the referenced datum is typically the MSL.
