## K. Adjustment Methods Comparison

### 1. Introduction

Except for a pure least squares approach, the numeric adjustment methods described in **Chapter E Section 1** are based on a general assumption of relative angle and distance accuracy.

The Transit Rule favors angles, the Crandall Method distances. The Compass Rule, the most common for simple traverses, treats angles and distances similarly.

This Chapter compares the three adjustment methods using a numerical example.
