Course Description & Objectives: 

The  Survey   Assistant   should   be  familiar,   in  practice,   with  all  instruments   and  methods   of measurement.  This practical course gives the opportunity for students to practice with most types of equipment  in all the common  methods of measurement,  both in trying out what was learned in the course on data collection and in preparing for presentations in case studies in the course on Reading the Field. The student groups are encouraged to carry out the tasks mostly on their own.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Objectives:

  •       Fixing position of unknowns from known positions
  •       Familiarisation with methods of measurement that require different computational methods
  •       Permanent adjustments of theodolite and other used instruments


Learning Outcomes: 

On completion of the course, the student should be able to:

  •       Understand the theodolite, tachometer and total station, and how to care for them
  •       Know how and when to use the different methods of measurement (traversing, triangulation, resection, etc.) and compute their accuracies.
  •       Know the computational methods involved with each method of measurement (slope staking, following a gradient, trigonometric levelling).
