Hi Louis, welcome to the Math Help Forum family! Astronomical number crunching has always broken my head lol... what started you down this particular path? It sounds very interesting!

## Geodesy 4 lyf!

My name is Louis

I am studying to be a surveyor (geomatic engineering). I have an interest in how the earth is shaped and the monitoring of the earths deformation. I like doing astronomic observations and doing some number crunching. At the moment I have a particular interest in Survey Control Networks. This involves the use of least squares adjustments. I want to create my own program where I have my own LSQ program that I can take with me when Im working for private firms.

Hello and goodbye!!!

Hi mash

I have always loved math and the outdoors. Being able to find a profession that incorporates both is very exciting. My neighbour was a surveyor so that is how I got involved. Unfortunately I have no choice in papers during my course, however I try as much as possible to increase my math knowledge. What about you? What made you start this forum?
