3 Books Surveying by S K Duggal, Tata McGraw Hill, Vol 1 Surveying: Theory and practices, S. S Bhavikatti Surveying and levelling by N. N Basak Plane surveying A M Chandra Surveying (Vol-1) by B. C. Punmia, Ashok K. Jain and Arun K. Jain

4 Laboratory Lab timing for all group: 2-4 pm (Monday- Friday) Room Number: Block IV, 335 Contact: Mr. Rajeev Sharma (Phone: 6442)

5 Attendance policy All students must attend all classes. Attendance record will be maintained and will be periodically uploaded through the UG web-site. Lectures: 70 marks for attendance, surprise quizzes, homework, assignments and exams Laboratory: 30 marks for attendance, surprise quizzes, notebook, viva If attendance of the student is greater than 90%, result of the best three quizzes will be considered else average of all quizzes will be considered. If a student’s attendance is less than 75%, the student will be awarded one grade less than the actual grade that he(she) has earned. For example, a student who has got A grade but has attendance less than 75% will be awarded A- grade.

6 Marks, Exam, Assignment LecturesLab Minor 110Viva10 Minor 210Surprise quiz10 Major30Notebook5 Surprise Quiz (any number) + Assignments + Homework 10Attendance >= 90% 5 Attendance (>=90%) + class participation (>=80% of time) means out of 10 question asked in class at least 8 should be correct 10

7 Attendance Policy …Contd. If a student has a valid medical certificate (from IITD hospital or a registered medical practitioner) because of which he/she has missed an evaluation component the compensation will be decided and put on notice board. If a student has missed any of the minors due to medical reasons or family emergency alternatives will be arranged. For example if a person misses minor-1 because of health problem he/she should produce the medical certificate immediately after re-joining the class and the re-minor will be conducted last working day of next week after minor-1. If a student misses Major examination he should apply for an I-grade or an extended-I grade. HOD will approve I-grade based on his/her assessment of the situation. In that case examination must be conducted within 10 days of completion of the majors. Dean, UGS will award the extended-I grade and in that case examination must be conducted within the first ten working days of the next semester.

8 Marks policy Full marks will be awarded for correct procedure and correct answer. 3/4 marks for correct procedure but wrong answer. Zero marks for wrong procedure and correct answer. All evaluation components including Minor and Major scripts will be shown to the students. Within 7-15 days after exam along with the model answer. The date and time for showing script will be displayed in the notice board. The schedule will be group wise. Grading of a course will be finalized and displayed after following the process of moderation. THEREFORE, NO INFORMATION WILL BE GIVEN ABOUT GRADING BEFORE THE MODERATION COMMITTEE’S MEETING, AND NO CHANGES WILL BE DONE ONCE THE GRADE IS DISPLAYED AFTER IMPLEMENTATION OF MODERATION COMMITTEE’S SUGGESTIONS. [PLEASE DO NOT BEG TO CHANGE THE GRADE ONCE IT IS FINILIZED AFTER MODERATION COMMITTEE’S MEETING]

9 Surveying What is surveying? Surveying may be defined as the science of determining the position, in three dimensions, of natural and man-made features on or beneath the surface of the Earth. These features may then be represented in analog form as a contoured map, plan or chart, or in digital form as a three dimensional mathematical model stored in the computer.

10 Objective of course To understand the basic concept of surveying Apply the surveying concept and equipments in real life You should be able to use a set of tools to solve the problems in an optimal way You should be able to understand the pitfalls (sources of error) to avoid them

11 Application of surveying in civil Engineering The planning and design of all Civil Engineering projects such as construction of highways, bridges, tunnels, dams etc are based upon surveying measurements. Project of any magnitude is constructed along the lines and points established by surveying. Thus, surveying is a basic requirement for all Civil Engineering projects. Other principal works in which surveying is primarily utilized are to fix the national and state boundaries; to chart coastlines, navigable streams and lakes; to establish control pointscontrol points to execute hydrographic and oceanographic charting and mapping; and to prepare topographic map of land surface of the earth.

12 Instruments… Levelling Staff Digital level Tilting Level  Telescope is fixed cannot be tilted or moved Dumpy Level  Telescope can be tilted slightly about its horizontal axis with the help of tilting screw.  The line of collimation is made horizontal for each observation with the help of tilting screw  Instrument can be levelled automatically within a certain tilt range

35 Classification of surveying: Based on function Primary division based on shape of the earth – Geodic survey: if the area surveyed is more than 1000 km 2 geodic surveying must be employed – Plane survey Classification based on function of survey – Control surveying: establishing the horizontal and vertical positions of widely spaced control points using geodic method. – Land surveying: to determine the boundaries and areas of parcel of land. – City surveying: urban planning – Topographic surveys: depiction of topography of a region. Including natural and man made features – Engineering survey: for laying out engineering projects. – Route survey: planning designing and execution of highways, railways, canals, pipelines etc. – Construction surveys: required to establish points lines, grades and for staking out engineering works after the plans have been prepared and the structural design has n=been done.

36 Classification of surveying: Based on function – Astronomic survey: are conducted for the determination of latitudes, longitudes, azimuths, local time etc. for various places by observing heavenly bodies such as suns and stars. – Geological survey: to determine the strata of the earth’s crust for geological studies. – Archaeological surveys: unearthing relics of antiquity – Mine surveys: exploration of mineral deposits, and to guide tunnelling and other operations associated with mining. – Satellite surveys: to establish intercontinental, interdatum and interisland geodic ties over the world by making satellite observations. – Military surveys: conducted for military purpose.

37 Classification of surveying: Based on instruments Chain survey: only linear measurements are made with chain or tape no angular measurements are taken Compass survey: horizontal angles are measured with the help of magnetic compass Plane table survey: The map is prepared in the field itself by determining the directions of various lines making linear measurements, and plotting the details on paper using a plane table Levelling survey: this type of survey is used to determine the elevations and relative heights of the points with the help of instrument known as level. Theodolite survey: theodolite survey is primarily used in traversing and triangulation for providing controls. The horizontal and vertical angles are measured with the help of theodolite. Tacheometric survey: a special type of theodolite known as tacheometer, is used to determine horizontal and vertical distances directly. Photogrammetric survey: measurements are made with help photograph. EDM Survey: linear measurements are made with the help of EDM instruments.

38 Principles of surveying Fixing the points in relation to points already fixed contents/IIT- ROORKEE/SURVEYING/modules/module1/htm lpage/9.htm# contents/IIT- ROORKEE/SURVEYING/modules/module1/htm lpage/9.htm#

39 Principle of surveying Working from whole to part: to localize the errors and to control the accumulation of errors. – Establish primary control points with high precision – Establish secondary and tertiary control points within the system boundary and form triangle/rectangle may be with less precision. – This will help in localizing the error and to control the propagation of error.
