Introduces surveying and spatial technology field practice as it relates to civil engineering. The types and use of basic surveying equipment including dumpy levels, total stations and GPS rovers will be introduced. Proper note-keeping techniques and computations are studied.
Principles of survey information in civil engineering
Topographic surveys using GPS equipment
Undertaking basic surveys using a total station
Transferring and manipulating survey data
Introduction to town planning
Subdivision design and layout
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
|On completion of this unit, students should be able to:|
|1||describe the principles of surveying including the key reference points, coordinate systems and origins|
|2||perform basic operations with survey equipment used in civil construction|
|3||work in teams to collect and manipulate survey data for subdivision layout design.|
On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
- describe the principles of surveying including the key reference points, coordinate systems and origins
