Instructor needed for:
ENGR 267: Introduction to Survey Techniques
April 2-June 14
Wenatchee campus for WVC

Course description: Students will learn the foundations for field survey techniques with field labs using methods and tools such as a total station and leveling equipment. The course covers the Professional Land Survey System along with how to establish and adjust control and conduct field survey to produce a topographic map.

No. Upon completion of this course, successful students will (be able to):
1 Transfer elevations, measure angles, and take field survey measurements using a total station, and leveling equipment.
2 Establish and utilize survey evidence such as monuments, written, measurements, parol, occupation, and judicial notice.
3 Understand datum and coordinate systems, vertical and horizontal curves, and the Public Land Survey System.
4 Interpret legal descriptions and blueprint plan and section views; apply these skills to field survey data collection.
5 Identify and correct survey errors.
6 Familiarity with use of other survey techniques such as GPS, LIDAR, bathymetry, scanners, and drones.

Core topics of this course:
• Overview of the history of public land survey methods
• Principles of vertical and horizontal survey methods including reading the rod, using math to transfer elevations, note taking, field measurements, loop closures, angles and distances, azimuth, degrees/minutes/seconds, stakeout, traverse, and instrument care.
• Taking field survey measurements using a total station and GPS instruments.
• Establishment of survey evidence using monuments, written, measurements, parol, occupation, and judicial notice.
• Understanding datum and coordinate systems.
• Collecting survey data to produce a topographic map.
• Survey principles for plan reading and layout.
• Establishment of horizontal and vertical curves.
• Analysis and interpretation of legal descriptions.
• Understanding the legal principles of property boundaries and the Public Land Survey System.
• Identification and correction of survey errors.
• How and where to conduct survey research.
• Understanding survey ethics and safety.
• Introduction to other survey technologies such as LIDAR, bathymetry, scanners, and drones.
• Weekly field labs covering (at a minimum) the following topics: differential leveling, taping, traverse leveling, horizon closure, traverse angle measurement, building layout, and grade staking.
