ENTK 1010 - Elements of Surveying
This course is an introduction to the principles and theories of land surveying. Students explore surveying tools including the stadia rod, chaining, automatic levels, theodolite, and Global Positioning Systems (GPS). Surveying concepts will be introduced in the classroom and applied through hands-on practice in the field. Students will practice error theory for measurements and adjustments as necessary to locate points, determine distances, angles, elevations and areas, and learn to close surveys. Emphasis is placed on the use of GPS units to collect field data. Students are introduced to map features and map reading to supplement their surveying skills.
