Course Description & Objectives: 

Following from the introductory course, this course concentrates on the positioning of data found in the field in a three dimensional environment, and positioning it numerically and at scale on paper in a two dimensional format. It has a decided bias towards measuring relative heights (levelling)  as the level is the easiest instrument to learn, and the concept of the vertical, and how to describe it on paper is the most fundamental parameter used by the Civil Engineer.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 Objectives:

  •       The purpose of this course is to present Surveying in its measurement and positioning aspect particularly in regard to relative heights
  •       The basics of methods of measurement, particularly of heights, and the help given by different instruments are expounded
Learning Outcomes: 

The student should:

  • Be totally familiar with the level instrument.
  •   Know whether the level instrument is beyond adjustment, and how to proceed with the world
  •   Be able to position by coordinates and compute between rectangular coordinates and polar coordinates.
  •      Know the difference between reduction by rise and fall method and by height of collimation
