Surveyors require the knowledge and skills necessary to precisely locate features on the Earth's surface. To do this, they require an understanding of the equipment and methods used to observe precise angles, and differences in level, as well as the determination of coordinates from GNSS equipment.
The purpose of this course is to provide the student with an understanding of the equipment and methods used to carry out precise surveys, including sources of error and the techniques used to minimise or eliminate them. In addition the students are expected to gain the necessary skills to complete these surveys at an appropriate standard.
