Introduces elementary plane surveying to students of surveying, civil engineering and environmental engineering. It covers basic concepts relating to such things as co-ordinate systems, and it introduces basic equipment and its usage.
Available in 2014
|Objectives||1. Introduce students to fundamental surveying concepts such as horizontal and vertical co-ordinate systems, horizontal and vertical angles and their manipulation, and graphical presentation of three-dimensional information, through contours.|
2. Bring students to competency in differential levelling.
3. Introduce students to the capabilities and techniques of usage of the following, and to develop basic usage skills, without detailed theory.
* electronic theodolites,
* coarse positioning through the Global Positioning System,
* electronic distance measurement systems,
4. Introduce students to concepts and practicalities of computer aided drafting, and develop basic usage skills.
