CET 204 Fundamentals of Surveying
This course is the study of surveying theory and practice; care and use of instruments; traversing procedures; and computation of closure. Students are introduced to specific methods and principles of spatial measurements and related techniques used in surveying. The course includes linear measurements, leveling, compass and transit/theodolite, theory of errors, areas, stadia, coordinate geometry, state plane coordinates and standard map projections. Lab work consists of horizontal control including distance and angular measurements, traversing and preparation of a plat, and vertical control including the performance of a level loop.
