Synopsis
. This course introduces the basic knowledge of surveying and mapping, survey
regulation, role of JUPEM and Licence Surveyors. Plans and maps: types,
components, design and plotting method. Levelling: techniques and its
application in civil engineering projects. Principle and method of basic surveying:
angle, bearing and distance. Traverse surveying: types, application, computation
and adjustment. Detail survey: Technique of measurement, booking,
computations and plan drawing. Automation in surveying and its applicaiion in
civil engineering projects. lntroduction and calculating various type of road
curve: simple curve, transition curve and vertical curve. It also covers the
various calculating areas: by rectilinear, irregular and from coordinate. ltwill also
cover calc,ulating volumes: from cross-sections, from spot heights and from
contour lines. Mass-haul diagrams will also be covered in*this course.
