SURV399 Third Year Field Course

Application of precise surveying techniques. Network analysis and adjustment.

This paper takes students through a control survey, including practical field techniques used in levelling, traversing and GPS. The data is then analysed using least square techniques. It also fulfills the control survey requirement for registration as a land surveyor.
