Students will be introduced to the various types of surveying equipment used in the course, learn to use auto and laser levels, learn to take basic survey notes used in cross sections and longitudinal profiles. Students will begin with an introduction to the equipment and review field data collection protocols in the classroom. Field exercises will be incorporated into the course to allow students to use the equipment and work with Instructors to learn level surveying techniques.
