The students will:
1. Identify and demonstrate the use and care of drafting tools and
mediums used in map drafting.
2. Demonstrate the technique of plotting data by protractor, drafting
machine, coordinates and other acceptable methods.
3. Demonstrate their knowledge and skills in drafting by reducing
surveyors field notes to draft records of surveys, parcel maps,
topographic maps, plan and profile drawings, final maps and other
types of maps used in surveying, engineering and construction.
4. Construct various maps by interpreting legal descriptions including
public land survey system, rights-of-way and other easements.
5. Identify and list the necessary elements to be shown on the various
maps used in surveying, engineering, and construction.
6. Identify the two basic map projections and illustrate their use.
