g. Surveying Practice Laboratory

Surveying is an art of determining relative positions of points on, above or beneath the surface of earth by means of direct or indirect measurements of distance, direction and elevation. Distance can be measured using different types and lengths tapes/chains. Directions are measured using Prismatic and Surveyors compasses. The vertical and horizontal angle between two points can be measured using special instruments like Theodolites. The elevations of the points can be measured using the auto levels.

Equipments
Tapes/Chains, Prismatic and Surveyors compass, Theodolites, Auto level, Plane table, Total station, Minor instruments like Cylon ghat tracer, Clinometer and Planimeter
