  •  The purpose of this course is to present still more instruments and methods of measurement to increase the student’s repertoire of approaches to the field problems he/she may meet
  •  Some of the older methods of measurement and their instrumentation are expounded.
  • The pitfalls associated with these methods are pointed out.
  •  Flexibility is again stressed


Learning Outcomes: 

On completion the student will:

  •  Be competent in the use of less common methods of measurement which often ease difficult situations.
  •  Be able to sound reservoirs, rivers and harbours
  • Reliable in photo identification,  knowing the requirements  of the photogrammetrist  in point selection.
  •  Able to navigate over large areas, with a sense of scale, using what detail maps, photographs, etc. have to offer.
