Introduction to Land SurveyingCourse
This first course in a landsurveying program includes discussion of land ownership, property rights, lawsgoverning property and definitions of land ownership and other surveyingrelated terms. Students research property ownership through property records.Maps are used to establish property boundaries. Students may be introduced toprimary tools for surveying and making maps, such as field equipment, mappingand GIS (geographic information systems) software, GPS (global positioningsystem) handhelds and computer aided design.
Using coordinate geometry,instruction is focused on computations necessary to identify survey points onland. Spherical coordinates and Cartesian coordinate systems are discussed. Inthis course students use advanced computations and thus trigonometry is aprerequisite.
This highly technical classintroduces the concept of creating a flat map, a plane, to describe a curvedsurface. Geodesy, measuring the shape of the Earth, is introduced. Studentslearn how to use the North Star to determine direction. Determining errors inprecision measurement is covered. This course is one of the last courses takenin a land surveying program.
Plane Surveying Course
Plane surveying introducesstudents to the skills and technological knowledge required for working in thefield. Students learn how to measure, calculate and record direction, distanceand elevation using standard field equipment; advanced skills are taughtthrough projects in which students use GPS for data collection and geometriccalculations to measure curves. Prerequisites for this technical course arebeginning land surveying and trigonometry.
This course is taken after theintroduction to land surveying course and plane surveying have been completed.Students practice interpreting and preparing land descriptions for titlesaccording to the U.S. Public Land Survey System. Additional topics includeboundary dispute case law, senior rights and title transfers. Strong readingskills are required for this course, which is based on the interpretation andanalysis of often complex legal concepts and language.
Public Land Survey System Course
The Public Land Survey System isa U.S. government maintained database of public land. Students interpret dataand maps from this survey system to identify and survey public lands. Dataquality issues are discussed. This course may be an elective.
