This course is held online over 2 days on the following schedule (All times in Eastern Time Zone):

10 am to 6 pm Eastern (Will include the usual breaks)

After participating in the course, you will be able to:

  • Understand the surveying analysis and map
  • Understand the principal of surveying designs and maps
  • Use Theodolites and levels
  • Conduct linear and angular measurements
  • Analyze the surveying errors
  • Understand the fundamental of GPS and its application in surveying

The main goal of this course is to provide the participants, engineers and construction professionals an appreciation and understanding of surveying and its construction application, as well as the use of modern survey instruments; transit, Theodolites, level, etc.; linear and angular measurements and errors; error analysis, the significance of figures; use of computers and software; recent developments; GPS. This basic knowledge gained in this course will help the students develop a good working understanding of the basic principles of surveying.

Course material includes measurement techniques and errors, Distance measurements principals, linear and angular measurements and errors and levelling, Control surveying, instrumentation and monitoring, Theodolites, Total station and GPS.
