Course description:

The aim of the course is to teach students the specifics of engineering geodesy, and theoretical and practical knowledge of engineering geodesy. Preparing students for the works in the field of engineering geodesy, with an emphasis on mastering the methods of staking out points and directions, as well as their practical application for the needs of the civil engineering. In the practical application of these methods the emphasis is on their application on the road construction. Student after successful completion of the course will be able to decide which method of staking out point or direction is best suited for a specific engineering task.

Learning outcomes at the level of the programme to which the course contributes
  • Understand the role of geodesy, geoinformatics and spatial data in modern world, demonstrate competences in measuring systems, methods and technologies of measurement and spatial data collection.
  • Demonstrate competences in theoretical principles, procedures of computing and visualising the surveying data..
  • Handle geodetic instruments and appropriate measuring equipment properly, and perform geodetic measurements.
  • Establish geodetic networks needed in surveying and stakeout in order to provide the required quality of the works performed in certain space.
  • Prepare geodetic documents needed to establish and maintain cadastral records and land registry, as well as the documents for engineering works.
  • Exercise appropriate judgements on the basis of performed calculation processing and interpretation of data obtained by means of surveying and its results.
  • Recognise problems and tasks in the application of geodetic and geoinformation principles and methods, and select proper procedures for their solution.

Learning outcomes expected at the level of the course
  • Define the basic tasks of engineering geodesy in civil engineering, staking out elements of construction sand how to determine them.
  • Explain and apply methods of staking out points and directions.
  • Make staking out elaborate of construction.
  • Determine the assessment of the accuracy of different methods for staking out buildings.
  • Evaluate which method is best suited for staking out a specific engineering task in the construction of buildings.
  • Describe and apply a method for transferring the staking out axis to the batter boards.
  • Describe the basic types of traffic and road elements in the horizontal (directions, circular, transitional and compound curvature) and vertical direction (vertical alignment).
  • Define the longitudinal and transverse profiles of roads.
