CONT202 - Surveying I

CONT 202 is the first of a sequence of two courses in plane surveying. It focuses on fundamental surveying theory and terrestrial–based survey measurements. Computations are made using an orthogonal 2D coordinate reference system and vertical datum. Use of traditional and modern surveying instruments is covered as well as computation methods using Coordinate Geometry (COGO) software. The emphasis of the course is primarily on construction and civil engineering applications. Instruction includes lectures and field use of traditional and modern instruments to perform measurements of distances, areas, angles, directions, elevations, and coordinates. Prerequisites: MATH 122; RDNG 116 if required by placement. 3 Cr. (2 Lec., 3 Lab.) Fall semesters.
