Please define long-distance. How precise do you need to be? If it's for a railroad, not super-critical,, but if you are trying to level a high-speed rocket sled test bed, real critical.

Quality of instrument and operator would play a major factor, but I'd generally choose laser.

Between those two choices, obviously laser.

Hello Guest,

All distance is Relative, you need to be specific.

The only Lazer I know spends most of the day on a couch watching TV.

When measuring long distances (intergalactic measurements) I have found that all optical measure is inaccurate, because the gravitational fields curve the light.

As far as levelling long distance, I have never had the pleasure.

Please reply, with

Kind Regards....

I thing that you have been abducted by the long distance marketers and are thus attempting to level the playing field. The distance is relative though you don't have any that will claim you anymore. Not that this is news to you, nor will it prevent you from making any more inane comments.

I actually think you may be one of the primary reasons a discussion is going on trying to determine what to do about people that ask stupid questions. Yours certainly qualify, and since you have a vocabulary, you must have utilized both of your braincells to maintain it and therefore anything written by you, while well done, would still qualify as stupidity. You can't fight your nature.

Love you anyway, you anonymous coward!

Water. You will need a bucket to carry it from one end of the long distance to the other. When comparing the two, make sure the water has stopped sloshing about. I do this in my garden all the time, and sometimes also use a plastic tube.
