N2 - The paper attempts to determine an optimum structure of a directional
measurement and control network intended for investigating horizontal displacements.
For this purpose it uses the notion of entropy as a logarithmical measure of probability of
the state of a particular observation system. An optimum number of observations results
from the difference of the entropy of the vector of parameters

to one extra observation. An increment of entropy interpreted as an increment of the
amount of information about the state of the system determines the adoption or rejection
of another extra observation to be carried out.
