SURVEYING (VOL 1)
ABOUT SURVEYING (VOL 1):
Surveying is an art of determining relative positions on, above or beneath the surface of the earth by means of direct measurements or indirect measurements of distance, direction and elevation. The application of the survey requires skill along with knowledge of maths, physics and a bit of astronomy.
The knowledge of surveying is beneficial in many phases of engineering, every engineering project requires surveys like establishing of roads, canals, railways, dams etc.
Prior to plans estimates are prepared, boundaries are established and topographies of that area are ascertained. After the plans are made, structures must be staked out on the ground. As the work progresses, lines and grades must be drawn.
NOTE: I have selected a few topics in a view to explain it to some extent showing contents, in order to make it easy to access the pdf which will be attached with the link.
I hope you find it helpful.

– PLANE SURVEYING (MODULE 1)
Course Outcomes: At the end of the Course, the student will be able to understand:
CO1 :Explain surveying: principles, Classification and linear measurements using chain and tape.
CO2 :Solve various problems related to compass surveying
CO3 :Compute the reduction of levels and prepare contour maps
CO4 :Use theodolite for various applications in construction field and trigonometrical surveying
CO5 :Calculate the areas of irregular boundaries.
CO6 :Calculate earthwork volume and reservoir capacity
Chain surveying can be used when the area to be surveyed is relatively small and is fairly even, but when the area is exceeding the limit, undulated and crowded with many details, triangulation is not possible. In such an area, the method of traversing is adopted.
-Traversing : In Traversing, the framework consists of a number of connected lines. The length is measured by a chain or a tape and the directions measured by angle measuring instruments. In one of the methods, the angle (direction) measuring instrument is the compass. Hence, in compass surveying directions of survey lines are determined with a compass and the length of the lines are measured with a tape or a chain. This process is known as compass traversing.
- Instruments used for direct measurement of directions.
- Surveyor’s compass.
- Prismatic compass.
- Instruments for measuring angles
