In this study, complementary estimators to Least Squares Method which is the most widely used estimation technique in geodesy, especially robust estimators such as M estimators, BIBER Estimator, iterative weighting method, Berberan Method and bifactor reduction model for correlated observations are studied. Furthermore, pre – adjustment and post – adjustment tests for outliers, reliability, breakdown point and leverage point are described. Finally, various examples in a simple linear regression model are given.
