Untitled document
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
1. Summarize the proper procedures and use of surveying equipment for
control, layout and boundary surveys.
2. Identify the use and dissemination of data and information through
proper surveying note keeping and plat preparation.
3. Perform complex surveying computations to determine vertical and
horizontal positions, directions of lines, distances between points and
location of property boundary.
4. Define and compute State Plane Coordinate System for California.
5. Define and compute the direction of lines by astronomic and satellite
observations.
6. Calculate the necessary data and layout horizontal and vertical curves
as they relate to roadway and boundary surveys.
7. Summarize and identify the procedures used in the Public Land Survey
System.
8. Summarize and identify the proper procedures for determining boundary
lines for property surveys.
9. Prepare a boundary plat from record and surveying data/information.
10. Prepare and interpret legal descriptions.
