creating contours

contours

Contours from plan symbolise projections of horizontal strata.

feature survey

from the previous exercise...

level survey

....establish a 5x5m grid

level survey

....place the survey staff along the intersecting points and record sighting (lines)

level survey

....a temporary benchmark will be assigned

resolve levels

....use a spreadsheet back in class, and ensure accurately transcribed values.

level survey

At each interval record the resolved level

(RL)

We need to work out along each line the RL @ 200mm increments...
