In the s, Lowell O. Stewart (Civil Engineering) described the history, instructions, and methods used in the rectangular system of surveying public lands. The book concentrates on technical aspects of surveying practice, particularly equipment, contract surveying system, and field techniques. The quest for a common language.

Vegetation in Civil and Landscape Engineering: Bache, David H., MacAskill, Ian A.: Books - or: David H. Bache, Ian A. MacAskill. Landscape engineering is the application of mathematics and science to shape land and waterscapes. It can also be described as green engineering, but the design professionals best known for landscape engineering are landscape ape engineering is the interdisciplinary application of engineering and other applied sciences to the design and creation of anthropogenic landscapes.
About this book. This guide gives the background to bioengineering and practical information on the design and implementation of vegetative methods for slope stabilisation, water erosion control, watercourse and shoreline protection, wind erosion control.
