Surveying (SRVY)

SRVY 1315
Surveying Calculations I

CRT HRS:3   LEC HRS:3   LAB HRS:0   OTH HRS:0

This course is an introduction to the mathematics used in surveying and mapping, eg., algebra, plane trigonometry, and plane, solid and analytical geometry.

Prerequisite: DFTG 1409, MATH 1414 or TECM 1303.

SRVY 1341
Land Surveying

CRT HRS:3   LEC HRS:2   LAB HRS:4   OTH HRS:0

This course is a study of the measurement and determination of boundaries, areas, shapes, and location through traversing techniques. Instruction will be provided in a variety of adjustment methods using programmed and non-programmed hand-held calculators and computers. Methods of traversing and adjustment of errors according to prevailing and applicable professional standards will also be covered.

Prerequisite: SRVY 1413.

SRVY 1342
Global Positioning System Techniques for Survey/Mapping

CRT HRS:3   LEC HRS:2   LAB HRS:4   OTH HRS:0

This course is an introduction to Global Positioning System (GPS) in surveying and mapping activities. Major topics include structuring a GPS system; designing a GPS data collection project; using GPS data collection equipment; collecting and processing GPS data; and correcting data errors.

Prerequisite: SRVY 1413 and DFTG 2430.

SRVY 1413
Plane Surveying

CRT HRS:4   LEC HRS:3   LAB HRS:3   OTH HRS:0

This course is an introductory overview of surveying equipment and measurement techniques used in mapping. Emphasis will be placed on leveling and traversing for preparing a map.

Prerequisite: DFTG 1409.
