EV380 (Version: 2020 2) COURSE DETAILS


COURSE TITLE EFF YEAR EFF TERM DEPARTMENT CREDIT HOURS
EV380 SURVEYING 2020 2 Geography and Environmental Engineering 3.5 (BS=0.5, ET=3.0, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
A framework for understanding and applying practical surveying methods is developed. Consideration of error theory and the concepts of precision and accuracy yields understanding of the probabilistic nature of measurements. The principles of differential leveling, electronic distance measurement, angular measurement, global navigation satellite system (GNSS) positioning, and terrestrial laser scanning (a.k.a. Lidar) are studied and applied using state-of-the-art surveying equipment and software tools. Plane surveys are principally explored, although the fundamentals of geodetic surveys are also presented. Traverse, triangulation, trilateration, level networks and the proper adjustment of related measurements are examined. Control survey, land survey, topographic survey, horizontal and vertical curve design, and Geographic Information System (GIS) software applications are included. Extensive use of laboratory periods permits the application of surveying fundamentals, methods and planning skills to actual field situations.

EV380 SURVEYING 2005 1 Geography and Environmental Engineering 3.5 (BS=0.5, ET=3.0, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
A framework for understanding and applying practical surveying methods is developed. Consideration of error theory and the concepts of precision of and accuracy yields understanding of the probabilistic nature of measurements. The principles of differential leveling, taping, electronic distance measurement and angular measurement are studied and applied using state-of-the-art surveying equipment and software tools. Plane surveys are principally explored, although the fundamentals of geodetic surveys are also presented. Traverse, triangulation, trilateration, level networks and the proper adjustment of related measurements are examined. Control survey, land survey, topographic survey, horizontal and vertical curve design, computer-aided mapping and GIS applications are included. Extensive use of laboratory periods permits application of surveying fundamentals, methods and planning skills to actual field situations. The principles of the global positioning system are explored and applications in the Army and surveying are applied in the final lab exercise.

EV380 SURVEYING 1997 1 Geography and Environmental Engineering 3.0 (BS=0.5, ET=2.5, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
A framework for understanding and applying practical surveying methods is developed. Consideration of error theory provides practical knowledge concerning the concepts of precision and accuracy and yields understanding of the probabilistic nature of measurements. Principles of tachometry, differential leveling, taping, electronic distance measurements, and angular measurements are studied and applied using modern surveying equipment. Traverse, triangulation, trilateration, level networks, and the proper adjustment of related measurements are examined. Field artillery survey, route survey, horizontal and vertical highway curves, topographic survey, computer-aided mapping, and building construction layout are included. Extensive use of laboratory periods permits application of measurement concepts, analytical methods, and planning skills to actual field situations. Global positioning system instruments are used and the principles of satellite positioning are discussed.
