CONS06040 2019 Surveying 1
This module is designed to give students a comprehensive understanding of the principles and methodology of conducting a site survey using basic surveying equipment. Students are introduced to automatic and rotating laser levels and their respective applications in conducting site, foul/storm water sewer, cross-sectional surveys and related applied site uses.
On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;
Define the various types of datum and bench marks that can be used in levelling including Ordnance Datum
Verify the absence of collimation error in equipment
Execute a Rise and Fall level survey to establish vertical control
Execute a HPC level survey
Perform all the necessary calculations and checks for determining heights by levelling including an assessment of the quality of the results obtained
Display knowledge of safety factors associated with the use of laser technology
Demonstrate extent of module comprehension by assessment.
Teaching and Learning Strategies
This module will be delivered using blended learning techniques. Introductory and theoretical elements will be conducted by lectures in a classroom, drawings generated in multi-disciplinary Computer-Aided Design project in a computer laboratory and Practicals conducted on the college campus green areas.
