The fifth edition of this textbook has

been completely revised and significantly extended in order to reflect

the revolution of geodetic technologies, methods and applications during

the last decade. The Global Geodetic Observing System established by

the IAG utilizes a variety of techniques to determine the geometric

shape of the earth and its kinematics, the variations of earth rotation,

and the earth's gravity field. The societal importance of geodetic

products was highlighted by the UN resolution on the Global Geodetic

Reference Frame. In this context, both space and terrestrial techniques

play a fundamental role. Recent space missions are monitoring

climate-relevant processes such as mass transport in the Earth system

and sea level changes. The analysis of the time variation of the

geodetic products provides the link to neighboring geosciences and

contributes to proper modelling of geodynamic processes. New satellite

mission concepts and novel technologies such as quantum gravimetry and

optical clocks show great potential to further improve the geodetic

observing system in the future. The book especially addresses graduate

students in the fields of geodesy, geophysics, surveying engineering,

geomatics, and space navigation. It should also serve as a reference for

geoscientists and engineers facing geodetic problems in their

professional work. The book follows the principal directions of geodesy,

providing the theoretical background as well as the principles of

measurement and evaluation methods, which is enriched with numerous

figures. An extensive reference list supports further studies.
