Tacheometry Survey
Field Work 9 hours DAC20503 1/3

TITLE: Applying knowledge to actual situations of producing detail and topography plan.


i. Student able to perform tacheometry survey using the appropriate
equipments with standard method and procedure.
ii. Student able to identify the relations of theoretical knowledge and practical
application in detailing and contour plan to construction works.


Topography plan is important in proposing the design of an infrastructure site, for
instance, building, bridge, road etc. Contour line which is produced by tacheometry
survey could help the designer to locate exactly and calculate the volume of cut and fill
