Engineering Surveys

Engineering Surveys play a vital role in the realm of engineering design, often requiring geodetic computations that go beyond standard civil engineering practices. These surveys are typically centered around horizontal and vertical control, which involve establishing a network of fixed points throughout a site. The positions of these points must be determined within a specific coordinate system.

Horizontal control focuses on defining points within a two-dimensional horizontal plane that encompasses the site. This establishes a framework for precise location referencing and measurement consistency across the project area.

Vertical control introduces the third dimension, adding elevation information to the chosen horizontal datum. This vertical control ensures accurate depiction of the site’s topography, facilitating precise engineering design and construction.

The measurements conducted for the control survey employ various types of equipment, tailored to the size and complexity of the site. In the case of smaller sites, theodolites and tapes are commonly utilized to observe horizontal control through traverses. Levelling techniques are employed to establish vertical control, ensuring accurate elevation measurements.
