ENCE 2620L - Introduction to Geomatics Laboratory


(1) Credit Hours

Students in small teams perform field exercises that are designed to illuminate fundamental surveying concepts that are introduced in the lectures. Field exercises include basic surveying techniques (distance and differential leveling with autolevel), as well as error analysis. Additionally, the collection of topographic and control data by electronic total station and data logger, using a GPS receiver to establish precise tie to a regional coordinate system, will be addressed. A number of lab exercises are directed at helping students to gain a good understanding of the trigonometry behind standard surveying techniques, and the conversion of angle and distance measurements to x-y-z coordinates. Laboratory 3 hours. Spring semester. Prerequisites: ENCE 1020 or ENME 1011 with a minimum grade of C, or department head approval. Corequisites: ENCE 2620 or department head approval. Laboratory/studio course fee will be assessed. Differential course fee will be assessed.
