Course: Land Surveying
- Daily schedule
- Planning and Registration
The course Land surveying course takes 4 days and costs € 1495. Class times are from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM. The course is usually given on Mondays. the course starts with a minimum of 3 participants
After this training you can be deployed as an assistant land surveyor for the Land Registry or for large construction and infrastructure projects. There are measurements that are easy with the current tools. That's nice to start with. Later in your career you also do complex measurements and / or measurements that depend a lot on it. Everything must be measured and calculated accurately. A small deviation during construction can have huge consequences for the construction, planning, costs and safety of the project.
Surveyors ensure that infrastructure projects are properly measured and planned in advance. They continuously measure whether the construction is exactly built according to the drawing. In other words, precision work.
Day 1: Surveying with a GPS Receiver
After a broad introduction to surveying, the participants will measure with a GPS receiver. On a large wasteland in the area, the students will measure several points with GPS. Some points are also insured with a nail. These "insured" surveying points will be used again in day 2 as a location for the Total Station.
Day 2: Surveying with a Total Station
On this second day, participants learn the theory behind measuring with a Total Station.The following matters will be discussed: basic concepts of the coordinate system, coordinate lists, drawing up a Total station, creating a known and free location, creating a network of fixed points using a Total Station, staking out using Total Station and checking it, taking control measurements (posts and anchor bolts), measuring objects, basic settings of the total station, error sources and how to prevent them and height measurement with a Total Station. After the theory has been discussed, a practical assignment is carried out to clarify the whole. The pitches that were measured with GPS in day 1 are now measured again with the Total Station.
Day 3: Surveying for the BAG and BGT
With QGIS and the PDOK extension you can easily consult BAG maps (basic registration of Addresses and buildings) and BGT maps (basic registrations of large-scale topography) of the environment where the surveyor will measure. This will be discussed in detail during this day. The students gain more insight into which objects are recorded and maintained in the BAG and BGT and with that what must be measured. The student learns what BAG and BGT objects are and what they mean in the IMGEO. During this day, students will learn surveying for the BAG and BGT.
Day 4: Surveying processing
We will process the measurements that were done in days 1 and 2 on this day with a CAD system. Students do not need any prior knowledge of CAD to follow this day. The teacher explains which CAD systems are available and how they are used to process a measurement. With GStarCAD (very similar to AutoCAD) the measurements are read, presented and checked. An XYZ points file is imported and presented with symbols. MOVE3D is a package for the exploration and equalization of surveying measurements. It is the most used package in the Netherlands for the processing and quality control of surveying measurements. The package can handle common observation types and combinations thereof. During this day you will receive a demo of this package.
At the end of the Course Land Surveying, you can be deployed as an assistant surveyor for construction and infrastructure projects.
