An Introduction to Accuracy Standards for Land Surveys

J. Paul Guyer, P.E., R.A., Fellow ASCE, Fellow AEI

This course sets forth accuracy standards and other related criteria that are recommended for use in large scale site plan topographic surveys for engineering and construction purposes. These standards relate to surveys performed to locate, align, and stake out construction for projects, e.g., buildings, utilities, roadways, runways, flood control and navigation projects, etc. In many cases, these engineering surveys are performed to provide the base horizontal and vertical control used for area mapping, GIS development, preliminary planning studies, detailed site plan drawings for construction plans, construction measurement and payment, preparing as-built drawings, installation master planning mapping, future maintenance and repair activities, and other products. Most engineering surveying standards currently used are based on local practice, or may be contained in state minimum technical standards.

This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
