This course will demonstrate that our licensure as expert measurers dictates that surveyors are uniquely qualified as professionals that provide existing condition information in support of a wide variety of design endeavors.


The presentation will focus on the techniques and tools used by those involved in the field of topographic and civil engineering surveys. The goal of the presentation will be to encourage high quality, professional work, and to share lessons and experiences.


Learning Objectives:

  1. Learn how to ask the right questions.
  2. Learn when and how what equipment and resources should be used.
  3. Learn thoughtful purpose and operate with insight when mapping.
  4. Learn the value of communicating clearly and producing a vital perception of product.
