Erin Marek 11/7/07 CE 301 Lab 8 Angle Measurements and Closed Traverse Survey Introduction: The purpose of this lab is to survey a closed traverse using the points set up on a patch of land. From surveying the land, I learned how to use a theodolite to measure the angles between two points. I also learned how to use one azimuth measurement of north to find the azimuth of many different angles. Procedure: Form a group of about 5 students. One student should take the tape and measure the distance between each of the five points and record the distance in the chart. Begin setting up the theodolite at point A by extending the legs and making sure it is leveled. After the theodolite is level, set the angle to zero by looking at the stop sign and turning the dial until the angle reads zero. Measure the angle from the stop sign to point E and use this number as the azimuth for all of the calculations. Reset the angle to zero by looking at point E. Measure the angle from point E to
