# SURVEYING

## Surveying is an art of making

measurements on or near the surface of
the earth and using these measurements
for preparation of plans or maps etc. which
will bring out the natural and artificial
features of land in their correct horizontal
and vertical positions.
OBJECTIVE OF SURVEYING
The object of surveying is to prepare a map or plan
to show relative position of points or the object on
the surface of the earth.

## The map or plan is draw to some suitable scale. It

shows the boundaries of districts, state and countries
too.

##  It is also include details of different engineering

features such as building, roads, railways, dams,
canals etc.
USES OF SURVEYING
Surveying may be use for the following properties

## i. To prepare cadastral map

ii. To prepare an engineering map
iii. To prepare the contour map
iv. To prepare military map
v. To prepare geological map, archeological
map etc.

PRIMARY DIVISION OF SURVEYING

##  Thus, the surface is obviously curved. Surveying is

primarily divided into two types considering the curvature
of earth’s surface.

1. PLANE SURVEYING

1. GEODETIC SURVEYING
PLANE SURVEYING

## o The curvature of the earth is not

taken into account, as the surveys
extent over small areas.

## o The degree of accuracy required in

this type of surveying is comparatively
low.

## o If the area of survey is less than

150sq.km is considered as plane.

## o Plane surveys are done for

engineering projects on large scale
such as factories, bridges, dams,
highways, railways, etc., and also for
establishing boundaries.
Plane surveying & Geodetic surveying
GEODETIC SURVEYING

## o The type of surveying that takes into

account the true shape of the earth.
These surveys are of high precision
and extend over large areas.

## o Also called trigonometrical

surveying, it is necessary to take into
account the curvature of the earth,
since large distances and areas are
covered.

## o The geodetic surveying deals in

fixing widely spaced control points,
it is carried out by great
trignometrical survey dependent of
India.
Difference between plane surveying and geodetic
surveying
NO. Plane surveying Geodetic surveying
1. The earth surface is considered as a The earth surface is considered as a
plane surface. curved surface
2. The curvature of earth surface is The curvature of earth surface is
ignored. taken in account.
3. Line joining any two points is Line joining any two points is
considered to be straight. considered to be curve.
4. The triangle formed by any three The triangle formed by any three
points is considered as a plane points is considered as a spherical
triangle. triangle.
5. The angle of triangle is considered as The angle of triangle is considered as
plane angle. spherical angle.
6. Carried out for a small area<150km2 Carried out for a large area >150km2
PRINCIPLES OF SURVEYING
1. Location of a point with respect to two known
points in the field

## 2. Working from whole to part

Always work from the whole to the part
To locate a new station by at least two
measurements from fixed

topographic survey of shores, banks, taking and locating soundings to
determine the depth of water and observing the fluctuations of the
ocean tide

establish a system of horizontal and vertical control

##  Measuring distance along angles between the survey lines

 Locating details of the survey with respect to the stations and lines
between stations, details such as boundary lines, streets, roads, building,
streams, bridges, and other artificial feature of survey

 Surveying contours of land areas in which the field work involve both
horizontal and vertical control
 Establishing parallels and perpendicular
 Taking measurement to inaccessible point
Field Notes

##  Notes should be legible, concise and comprehensive, written in clear, plain

letters and figures

##  use sharp 2H or 3 H pencil

 Make note for each day’s work on the survey complete with a title of the
survey, date, weather condition, personnal of the crew and list of
equipment used

 never erase. If mistake is made , rule one line through the incorrect value
and record the correction above the mistake

##  Sign the notes daily
