LSCE1530 Survey Fundamentals

Course Description

Students will study basic surveying with practical applications in horizontal distance, angle and vertical measurement, introduction to total station/data collection, traverse angle and distance measurement methods. The student will begin using coordinate geometry. This course includes extensive fieldwork.

Student Learning Outcomes

  • perform distance measurements related to plane surveying and apply appropriate corrections
  • perform angle measurements and apply appropriate corrections
  • perform vertical distance measurements and apply appropriate corrections
  • use mathematical computations to deal with measurement uncertainties
  • work cooperatively in a work group environment
  • identify Minnesota tree types
  • create survey field notes
