Aim - To demonstrate the fundamentals of surveying use of surveying instruments.

Objective - To assess the student knowledge and skill in theory and practical applications:
- Linear Surveying
- Traverse Surveying
- Practice with Total Station
- Calculation of Earthwork Areas and Volumes
- Acquaintance with Laboratory Reports Preparation

Task 1: Assignme nt Problem:

For the proposed road construction, a land area of 600m x 600m was surveyed and levels were taken on a square grid of 100m x 100m. Grid columns are marked as from A to G and rows are marked as 1 to 7. At each grid point level is observed and are as shown in following table. Take of Benchmark as last three digits of your student ID. Proposed road starts from grid point G1 and ends at grid point A7. At points G1, F2, E3, D4, C5, B6 and A7 cross section observations are taken at 10m and 20m on left and right hand side of centre-line from G1 to A7.
