Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Carleton University CIVE 2004 Assignment 1 Page 1 of 4 CIVE 2004 GIS, Surveying, and Graphics 2017 Fall Term Assignment 01: Anthropometrics Introduction Sometimes engineers need to be able to assess the layout of a site before actually carrying out a formal survey in order to have a rough estimate of distances and elevations using simple techniques as the basis of measurement. Because we use our own body as a measuring tool, we call this exer- cise anthropometrics . The first part of this exercise will ask students to determine a basic set of measurements (pace, stride, height, span, etc.) and the second part will ask them apply this knowledge to do a simple field survey. Equipment . All teams will meet in the Minto building Foyer to collect and sign-up for equipments. Each team brings a surveying equipment bag and makes sure it contains a 30m tape, 15 ft construc- tion tape, crayons and chaining pins. You will need your notebook to record the measurements tak- en in this exercise. Teams must return the equipment to the structures lab, 2032 MC.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
