A Probability Primer Part 1: Randomness, Distributions, and Histograms
This technical note begins with some commonly heard objections to using probability and statistics in the practice of land surveying, which is followed by a list of arguments that sketch out responses to these objections and generally makes a case for probability and statistics in land surveying. The body of the note is a tutorial on some probability concepts with a focus on the notion of randomness, and what the patterns of random events look like when represented as histograms. This note lays the foundation for the next note in this series, which develops the normal distribution, being a cornerstone for almost all analyses and adjustments in land surveying.
