Course description

This course is an introduction to survey concepts, measurements, computations, and automated surveying. It covers the required mathematical concepts, the theory and operation of survey instruments, the measurement of distances and angles, leveling, and all associated calculations. Emphasis is placed on field surveying where students learn to capture electronic field data and utilize that information for environmental applications. A field camp provides students with the opportunity to apply skills learned in class in a natural setting. While at field camp, students conduct surveys in a natural landscape in order to collect data for further analysis.
