This course provides an introduction to the fundamental ideas and process of finding the relative position of various points on the surface of the earth by measuring distance among them and setting up a map to any reasonable scale by considering a planar Earth surface as a reference. It will help the student to understand the main concepts of plane surveying measurement techniques and instruments including plane table, prismatic compass, digital levels, theodolite, and GPS to establish horizontal and vertical control with the necessary adjustment.

Learning outcomes:

It is the goal of this course that, by the end, a student will:

  • Demonstrate an ability to solve plane surveying problems using appropriate mathematics.
  • Learn to use Level and determine differences in elevations and perform topographic surveys.
  • Execute the basic techniques and capabilities of surveying instruments including theodolite and GPS
