Instructions
Course Objectives: Following this course, the student should be able to
 Compute coordinates of survey points by
applying angles, distances, bearings, azimuths.
 Perform algebra and trigonometry
operations on equations to "solve" for unknown quantities
 Compute survey coordinates by standard
"COGO" operations called "traversing",
"inversing", "bearingbearing intersection",
"bearingdistance intersection", "distancedistance
intersection", and "resection".
 Calculate survey data by applying basic
theory without software using a handheld calculator similar to those
approved for the board exams.
 Calculate survey data by applying basic
theory in Microsoft "Excel" spreadsheet software.
 Calculate quantities of figures such as
perimeters, areas, volumes.
 Solve survey calculations such as
"predetermined areas", "missing traverse parts",
"compound and reverse curves", and "radius calculations."
 Apply analytic geometry and matrix methods
in survey calculations.
