Advanced Surveying

This course introduces students to advanced survey techniques for civil design and construction. The students get hands-on experience with total stations, data collectors and Global Positioning System (GPS) to capture and process digital field data. Students will be introduced to data processing, terrain modelling and mapping using digitally collected field data. They will also develop skills associated with laying out infrastructure projects. At the end of this course, students will be able to perform GPS and total station instrument setups and checks, record and process data.
