This seminar discusses surveying with a total station. Angle measurements and distance measurements, plus the basics of GPS surveying will be discussed. Under angle measurements topics include correct observing procedures, errors caused by an instrument being out of adjustment, accuracy and precision, and how to determine the precision of your instrument. Under distance measurements topics covered include the characteristics of Electronic Distance Measurements (EDM's), retroprisms, and how to calibrate the EDM on your total station. GPS is here to stay, especially Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) for the practicing land surveyor, and this will be covered in detail.

This course should be of interest to those who practice surveying but also those who work in the civil engineering field, including county engineers, city engineers, public works officials, transportation engineers, DOT personnel, federal employees, contractors and consultants.
