Level Loop Adjustment Spreadsheet

This handy spreadsheet computes a level loop’s misclosure and distributes corrections evenly throughout the loop. You supply the rod readings or height differences around the loop as well as the starting and ending elevation. The spreadsheet computes the misclosure and adjusted elevations for all stations in the loop.

There’s a blank spreadsheet with the formulas in it, ready to use and an example spreadsheet as well.
