Course Description & Objectives: 

This course moves on to the study of survey equipment, including instruments, particularly of the theodolite  type, such as the tachometer  and total station, and methods  of measurement  concerned with coordinated  positions  and how to plot them to scale on a grid. It has a decided bias towards bearing and distances measurements and positioning by coordinates.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     Objectives:

  •       The purpose of this course is still to present Surveying in its measurement  and positioning aspect, but particularly in regard to plannimetric positioning.
  •       The more in depth methods of measurement and the help given by different instruments are expounded.
Learning Outcomes: 

On completion the student will:

  •       Be totally familiar with instruments of the theodolite and EDM types
  •       Be able to ascertain whether the instrument is faulty, and if so, what can be done about it
  •       Know what action to take in the field if stuck with a faulty instrument
  •       Be able to traverse to a sufficiently high degree of accuracy for the Engineer’s proposal
  •       Know when to use triangulation, trilateration and resection, and use them reliably
