{{#category_index:S|stepping method}} A surveying method for determining the elevation of the stadia rod with respect to the transit. A point that is level with the transit is sighted through the telescope, which is then tilted so that the bottom cross-hair is aligned with the point. Another point in the line of the top cross-hair is sighted and the procedure is repeated until the stadia rod comes into the view of the telescope. The number of steps or times of retilting the telescope is counted and converted to Beamans, the full intercept between the stadia wires being one Beaman.
