Surveying, An Introduction
Learn basic surveying principles. Topics covered will include basic background to operate traditional instruments such as the level, chain, and transit. Theory is enhanced with practical exercises. Learn to distinguish between accuracy and precision. Work with levelling instruments and learn to use levelling rods and accessories. Differentiate between different methods of linear measurement and establish a personal pace length. State the procedure for making slope measurements. Learn the components of a transit, and setting it up over a point. Demonstrate the procedure for making angular measurements. Measure horizontal angles singly and doubly. Note: The student requires a preceptor for equipment use and set-up. Preceptors are typically from an engineering, surveying, or construction firm.
