A '''''Laplace station''''' is a survey station at which astronomical observations have been made and used in Laplace's equation to determine the deviation of the vertical (the difference between the local vertical and the normal to the spheriod of reference). Within [:triangulation station:triangulation] networks, Laplace stations help to control the errors in scale and azimuth that would otherwise accumulate. | A '''''Laplace station''''' is a survey station at which astronomical observations have been made and used in Laplace's equation to determine the deviation of the vertical (the difference between the local vertical and the normal to the spheriod of reference).
