Students will perform total station instrument setups, checks and calibration for both infrared and reflectorless technology. Students will also carry out angle and distance measurement procedures, direct and remote elevation determination, traversing procedures, topographic/detail surveys and construction layout. The course will cover both onboard digital and manual data collection and on-board data processing in a variety of industry standard scenarios. An overview of coordinates and coordinate systems will also be given. A portion of this course is available on-line.
- No prerequisites are required for this course.
