Topographical Surveying Training Cardiff Module 1

This Topographical Surveying Training Cardiff has been developed to provide a general overview of basic land surveying and measurement techniques using manual and electronic equipment, transfer of field data to digital terrain modelling software and to produce 2 or 3 dimensional survey output files for computer aided design (CAD).

Course Aims:

The course will give the candidate a brief insight and understanding of surveying principles and equipment.

Candidates will gain practical experience in the use of manual and electronic equipment to successfully carry out levelling surveys and topographical surveys of project sites, and to digitally transfer the topographical field data to Land Surveying Software to produce a 3 dimensional model of the site and output ACAD compatible files for design purposes.
