CIV 202 - Surveying II
This course covers the basics of horizontal and vertical curve geometry as used in highway design before undertaking the study of more advanced road design topics including: use of mass diagrams to track earthwork on highways; control surveying mathematics; universal coordinate systems as used by NYSDOT; and boundary location, as needed for highway right-of-way. Laboratory exercises will vary between CAD drawings and one or two outdoor exercises.
Prerequisite: CIV 201 Surveying I
3 Class Hours, 3 Laboratory Hours
