This course details the various activities involved in the survey process, including data requirements and procedures for gathering and presenting the data. Recent developments in surveying technology have made many methods obsolete. In general it is assumed that the surveyor is using total stations, data collectors, data reduction software and a computer aided drafting system. The requirements specified in this course are intended to control the end product rather than intermediate activities, e.g., data collector formats. The required end product will be a complete survey in electronic format, certain check plots and required notes and documentation. This course, instructions from the Regional Survey Supervisor, and, in the case of surveys performed by consultant firms, the contract, will define requirements for each separate project.
