com) SUG514 – HYDROGRAPHIC SURVEYING Run Line vs Cross Line _________________________________________________________________________________________________________

QUESTION Survey Area is 2 km to seaward and 5 km along the coast. The final scale is 1 : 2000

Calculate: 1. 2. 3. The total number of sounding line The total sounding distance The total number of cross line if the cross line spacing is 5 times of sounding line spacing 4. 5. The total distance of cross line If the turning distance between lines is 15% of the total run line distance and the survey speed is 5 knots, how many hours are required for sounding?

1.

Number of Sounding Line = 5000 m coastal ÷ 20 m sounding line spacing = 250 lines + 1 lines begin = 251 lines

2.

Total Sounding Distance = 2 km seaward x 251 sounding lines = 502 km

3.

Number of Cross Lines = 5 times sounding line spacing = 5 x 20 m = 100

= Length of sounding distance (seaward), 2 km = 2000 m = (2000 m ÷ 100 m) + 1 lines = 21 lines

4.

Total Cross Line Distance = Total Sounding Distance + Total Number of Cross Line = 502 km + 105 km = 607 km

5.

If the turning distance between lines is 15% of the total run line distance and the survey speed is 5 knots, how many hours are required for sounding?

15% of the total sounding line distance = (15 ÷ 100) x total cross line distance = (15 ÷ 100) x 607 km = 698 km

1 knot = 1.852 km / h = 5 knots = 5 x 1.852 = 9.26 km / h

How many hours required? = 698 ÷ 9.26 = 76 hours
