Involves significant amounts of PC-based computations using proprietary and other software. Computations required for the reduction and analysis of field surveys, including an introduction to three dimensional spatial co-ordinate systems, three dimensional co-ordinate transformations, spherical trigonometry, traverse reduction methods, cadastral survey computations, and survey-based computer-aided drafting (CAD) principles, practice and examples of software.
1. to develop skills in reducing most efficiently a wide range of survey observations into spatial information
2. to be able to reduce some survey observations by commonly used procedures
3. to be able to use CAD software of value to survey industry
Part 1: Computations required for the reduction and analysis of field surveys, including three dimensional spatial co-ordinate systems; three dimensional co-ordinate transformations; spherical trigonometry; traverse reduction methods; and cadastral survey and subdivision computations.
Part 2: Computer-aided drafting (CAD) for survey and geographic information: generic principles, practice using examples of available software.
