Prerequisites by Topics:
• • • • Trigonometry Simple differentiation and integration 'nalytical geometry Statistics

Course Objectives:
Broad Objectives
• • • Students (ill o)tain a full understanding of t"e nature of surveying data, including errors and t"e need for error control. Students (ill learn a)out surveying pro*ect fundamentals, particularly referencing systems, "orizontal and vertical control, and topograp"ic mapping. Students (ill gain an understanding of t"e nature of calculations made (it" surveying data, met"ods of data recording, display, and storage.

Learning Outcomes
• • +y collecting data (it" errors, students gain a )etter appreciation of data ,uality and "o( instruments and field tec"ni,ues contri)ute to error. Students learn rules for "andling systematic errors, random errors and )lunders. Students learn elementary statistical met"ods to aid in error control. Students appreciate t"e concepts of accuracy and precision. Students understand "o( to meet client e-pectations in terms of data ,uality. Students develop an appreciation of "o( one set of surveying data relates to anot"er. Students learn t"e importance of referencing t"eir pro*ects properly. Students learn to (or. (it" ot"ers, respect t"e contri)utions of ot"ers, resolve difficulties, and understand responsi)ility. Students (ill learn surveying tec"ni,ues t"at (ill remain current for long periods of time. Students understand t"e range of calculations t"at can )e made (it" surveying data and understand t"e lin.ages )et(een surveying data and engineering design.
