This course serves to reinforce or to introduce engineers, surveyors and their staff to the requirements of New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) surveying projects. This material benefits professional engineers who oversee surveying activities in multidiscipline firms as well as professional land surveyors and their staff.
Throughout this course, you will study the publication titled, New York State Department of Transportation Land Surveying Standards and Procedures Manual, Chapters 1-9. The Manual covers varied topics too numerous to mention in this introduction, addressing both technical and practical matters of benefit to all professionals, not just those participating in NYSDOT activities. Links to several additional documents are provided in the Manual as well.
NYSDOT Standards provides valuable general guidelines and data, even for surveyors and engineers who do not participate with specific DOT projects. The Manual is carefully worded, well organized and thoughtfully constructed.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
* If you are a registered professional land surveyor in Florida, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Tennessee, Texas or Vermont, you need to take the approved courses for that specific state under the course category "Surveying & Mapping".
