Conventional near-shore large-scale hydrographic surveys use only two lines of position (LOPs) for position fixing. Previous works have proved that accuracies needed to meet the present International Hydrographic Organizations standards are frequently not achieved using conventional surveying methods. The concept of using multiple lines of position (MLOP) adjusted by the least squares method was described. Actual field measurements acquired in the autumn of 1984 were processed to ascertain the increase in accuracy using MLOP versus conventional two LOPs on each hydrographic position. Recommendations are to use a four-range fully automated position-fixing method to increase production, improve data quality, and have better control of the survey operations.
