Balancing of travers is done by?

D.C. said: (Sep 9, 2016)  
Reducing the error of closure is the balancing.

We can also do this by Bowditch and Empirical. I think option D is correct.

In Bowditch method, both angular and linear are given equal precision.

In axis method, angular measurements are measured accurately and corrections applied to linear measurements only.

I think option D is correct.

Can anyone explain clearly?

Balancing is done by two methods 1 transit and 2 Bowditch.

If angular measurement are precise then transit method is used.

If linear measurements are precise than angular then Bowditch method is used.

Bowditch rule = this rule is used to balance the traverse when angular and linear measurement are (equally) precise.

Transit rule = this rule is used when angular measurement is (more) precise than linear measurement.

Yes. You are correct, thanks @Pankaj.

All three options are used for balancing the closed traverse and if angular measurements are more precise than linear measurements then the answer is transit rule.
