This course provides students with the necessary skills to collect, analyse and adjust survey measurement data for a variety of applications. The Least Squares technique is normally used to calculate adjusted values and precision indicators, with the results presented in one or more coordinate systems.

The purpose of this course is to provide the students with an understanding of the law of propagation of errors, statistical theory, and applications to the analysis and adjustment of survey observations using the Least Squares method. Both manual methods, using hand held programmable calculators, and computer software packages are used to process the data from a variety of practical problems. Students are taught to analyse and understand the results of adjustments. The course examines the adjustment of terrestrial and GPS observations and coordinate transformations.
