Much of the subject of surveying is related to the use of scientific instruments. Interest goes back some 3000 years to the various simple equipment used to reestablish field boundaries after the annual floods of the river Nile or to build tunnels, aquaducts and other structures, the remains of which can be found in parts of the Middle East today. From simple squares, water levels and the like the profession has progressed through many forms of theodolite and level, quadrant, astrolabe, zenith sector, plane table and numerous other instruments.
