Tech/Engineering - Construction / Civil Engineering / Excavations
German term or phrase: Einmessen
Two different contexts, two different meanings?

1. (Context is Ausheben von Gruben). Die Einmessung erfolgt durch die Bauleitung oder der Auftragnehmer, der die Messprotokolle der Bauleitung zu uebergeben hat.
Here einmessen = survey, initial measurement (of cable, piping position prior to excavation)?

2. Erdverlegten Anlagenteile wie Rohreitungen und Kabel muessen vor dem Verfuellen eingemessen werden.
Here einmessen = level? Or more measuring of position?

Existing Kudoz entries do not seem appropriate in either context.

Explanation:
Routledge Dict of Constr.

These are both the same processes; the objects are measured/surveyed so that they can be entered in ("as built")plans - makes it easier to find them ;-) and avoids nasty surprises when digging...
