Surveying lab offers supplemental experience in fundamental land surveying measurement methods for surveying courses, including precision steel taping methods to perform horizontal measurements, traditional transits and digital theodolites to perform angular measurements, and traditional and automatic levels for elevation measurements.
In addition, students have opportunity to use total station equipment, which enables horizontal, vertical, and angular measurements to be made in one operation.
• Digital level
• Global Positioning System (GPS) for performing differential GPS surveys
