Untitled document
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
1.  Summarize the proper procedures and use of surveying equipment.
2.  Prepare proper surveying notes and information.
3.  Perform complex surveying computations involving angles, directions,
   distances, areas, and volumes, vertical and horizontal positions.
4.  Calculate the proper method to determine horizontal measurements by
   taping, total stations and recorded surveying data.
5.  Define the different types of surveying and their uses.
6.  Determine the difference in elevation between points by the correct
   leveling process.
7.  Layout, measure, analyze and adjust level runs, field traverses and
   topographic mapping.
8.  Compute direction of a line from field data and record data using
   magnetic and geodetic information.
9.  Compute the relative position of points by traversing.
10. Prepare a topographic map from surveying data and information.
