Overview and classification of survey
What you will learn
Basic Knowledge of survey
This course is the culmination of the experience gained by me while teaching students at various levels diploma, degree and AME
I have always felt that most of the available course on surveying and levelling take up the subject in a round about and confusing way, In this course, I have tried to explain topics in a direct manner, avoiding unnecessary explanations.
The course covers the syllabi of diploma, degree and AME courses and a few topics are also included to aid practicing engineers.
This course comprises matters related to surveying and mapping in civil engineering. Students will be explained the types of equipment used for land surveying. This includes the equipment used for angle measurement, height measurement, distance measurement and area measurement. Procedure in operating surveying equipment, interpreting the surveying data result and the method in calculating the measurement are also explained.
Field procedures of different types of surveying are illustrated in a systematic manner.
In this course we learned about chain survey, compass survey, plain table survey, levelling, contouring their functions, object and how to use it practically.
Student will have the knowledge of the application of surveying and the equipment used in the construction project
Student will be able to process data obtain in the field and make a topography map and calculate the volume of a land needed.
