COURSE CONTENT

Outcomes and Objectives:
At the conclusion of this course, the student should be able to:
Untitled document
The students will:
1.  Define and give illustrative examples of various maps and their
   application to surveying, engineering and/or construction.
2.  Plot a topographic map from data collected in the field.
3.  Demonstrate their knowledge and objectives of the public land
   survey system.
4.  Identify the appropriate use of horizontal and vertical curves as
   they apply to road construction.
5.  Calculate the necessary data and demonstrate how to successfully
   stake-out both horizontal and vertical curves.
6.  Demonstrate how to slope-stake for cuts and fills, determine earth
   volumes.
7.  Calculate and set-up the appropriate field notes to stake-out
   pipelines and building structures.
8.  Demonstrate knowledge and use of State Plane Coordinates and
   direction of lines by solar/polaris observation.
