Description

Develop previously acquired land surveying techniques to a more advanced level. The emphasis is on development of skills in advanced surveying techniques and equipment. Data will be collected in the field, downloaded and processed electronically, using Total Stations and Global Positioning Systems.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;

1.

Operate and take measurements using total stations and GPS surveying equipment for a range of land surveying applications.

2.

Apply corrections and ajustments to horizontal control surveys.

3.

 Establish survey control of determined accuracy using GPS equipment and OSi reference.

4.

Generate and manipulate field survey data and incorporate design data using specialised software.

5.

Critically evaluate the use of advanced positioning instrumentation for surveying and setting out.
