Objectives 1.Determine the uses of a Transit level and a Dumpy Level with 100% accuracy. 2.List the parts of the levels with 90% accuracy. 3.Demonstrate how to correctly adjust a surveying level with 100% accuracy. 4.Demonstrate how to properly care for the leveling equipment with 95% accuracy.
Reasons to Learn 1.Why do we need to know the different uses for a transit level and dumpy level? 2.Why do we need to learn how to use surveying levels? 3.Why do we need to know how to care for the leveling equipment?
Questions to answer 1.What are some things that we use surveying levels for? 2.What steps do we need to follow to prepare the level for use? 3.What are some steps we can take to properly care for the levels?
Uses for surveying levels. What are some things we use these levels for? i.Figuring elevation iiLaying out the pad for a building iii.Determining Property Borders
Parts of a Level
Setting up the level i.Place tripod firmly in the ground ii.Carefully attach the level to the tripod iii.Adjust the Leveling screws until the spirit level is centered.
Proper care of the level i.Store the equipment in a safe place with a steady temperature. ii.Clean the equipment regularly iii.Always store the levels back in their protective cases
Summary Name three things that we use transit and dumpy levels for. What do we need to prepare the level for use? What steps can we take to keep our equipment in good shape?
