Introduction to GIS and GPS for Land Surveyors: 4 Hours
The purpose of this course is to provide a basic understanding of the term “GIS,” and how this science is applied in land surveying. It is meant to familiarize surveyors with the terminology and industry lingo used by GIS Professionals, such that those composing or submitting responses to Requests for Qualifications or Proposals can better understand the scope of GIS or GPS services they need, or be asked to provide, and whether they have the in-house talent to perform such services. Essential concepts are initially discussed in order to understand the formats of geographical information and how it is used. Some of the more abstract scientific concepts and theories, while important, will not be covered. The course contains a short overview of the more popular GIS and GPS software and hardware. Surveyors should understand the differences between traditional electro-optical and GPS survey techniques. Lastly, it is meant to be an informative, practical and entertaining “quick study” for those deciding whether to integrate some of these skills into their career, or to possess a basic conversational language and understanding of the world of GIS and GPS.
Ethics for Land Surveyor: 2 Hours
Ethics in land surveying are difficult to understand. The right and wrong decisions aren’t always distinct. In this course you will get a full introduction to ethics in the profession of land surveying. You’ll learn the definition of ethics and the origin of the term. You’ll understand the link between ethics and professionalism. You’ll find out about the different, and at times conflicting, areas of ethical obligation for land surveyors. You’ll also examine areas of ethical concern unique to land surveyors, such as ethics in the map review process and ethical considerations when setting property corner monuments as part of a boundary survey.
Remote Sensing for Surveyors: 3 Hours
This course was designed as an introduction to Remote Sensing technology and how it applies to the Surveying and Mapping industry. Remote Sensing is one of the most revolutionizing technologies to be integrated with surveying since GPS. This course will expand the students’ knowledge of how Remote Sensing and Aerial Photography work and integrate into the map-making process.
The Subsurface Underground Engineering Process: 3 Hours
This course was created to introduce the Surveyor to the Subsurface Utility Engineering process. The Surveyor will gain knowledge of SUE benefits throughout the project and will be introduced to the different quality levels associated. After completion, the Surveyor should have a fundamental knowledge of the overall SUE process.
