This presentation is oriented to all civil engineers and surveyors of any discipline of practice, with the intention to refresh the basic surveying concepts, techniques, and more specifically, understanding different survey approaches depending of the project purpose or requirements.
During this presentation, we are planning to discuss the basic concepts of surveying, for engineering infrastructure.
Surveying has been used by humans since the dawn of civilization, however, during the last 50 years, the usage of survey data for planning, design, construction, and analysis has grown in complexity and versatility. These advancements have made it essential to coordinate with all engineering disciplines to optimize resources and make development as efficient and cost effective as possible.
Surveying is used on projects from the initial planning and design to the final record drawing production, and at various stages throughout the design and construction of a project.
During this hour we will refresh some of the basic survey planning and design concepts that should be understood by an engineer when enlisting Survey services.
This short presentation will discuss:
- Survey origins
- Survey uses
- Survey techniques
- Survey technology
