The first sight taken after setting up the level is called a back-sight, or plus sight ; those taken after this, and before the instrument is moved, are called fore-sights or minus sights. As the difference of the readings of the rod on two points gives their difference of elevation, the difference of the sum of the plus sights, and the sum of the minus sights on TP's and the last point will give the difference in elevation of the extreme points.
