Specific course information

This course presents the concepts of measuring distances, elevations and angles, measurement errors, photogrammetry, topographic maps, profiles, transverse sections, surveys of objects and structures and boundary surveys. The use of specialized instruments for field data acquisition and topographical surveys is emphasized.

Specific goals of the course

Learning objectives:
  • To perform planimetric and topographical surveys.
  • To calculate mass profile volumes.
  • To identify studies requiring aerial photography.
  • To measure areas, heights, slopes and profiles on stereoscopic models.
