GS1610 - Surveying and Mapping

This course emphasizes geomatics principles as they apply to spatial databases. Building on the skill sets associated with measuring for maps and land type surveys, students will develop expertise in the use of equipment such as: total stations, GPS receivers, and data loggers to locate features and attach the attribute information. Through project work in the lab and field, students will gain practical experience in equipment use, maintenance and troubleshooting. Once collected, features will be placed in a GIS/Land Information System and appended to existing digital maps and plans. The resulting maps and GIS databases will be used to solve spatial queries related to land parcels.
