Introduction to Surveying Notes
Definition:
Surveying is the science and art of determining the relative
positions of points above, on, or beneath the earths surface and
locating the points in the field.
The work of the surveyor
consists of 5 phases:

Brief History of Surveying Notes
1.
Surveying had its beginning in Egypt about 1400 BC
2.
ROPE-STRETCHERS Egyptian surveyors were
created to relocate the land divisions (measurements
were made with ropes having knots at unit distances).
Extensive use of s
Measurement of Distance Notes
Linear measurement is the basis of all surveying and even
though angles may be read precisely, the length of at least
one line in a tract must be measured to supplement the
angles in locating points.

Tape Error Correction Notes
1)
Measuring between two existing points:
1)
If a tape is long, the distance will be short, thus any
correction must be added
2)
If tape is short, the distance will be long, thus any
correction must be subtracted
3)
If you are

probability of rolling snake eyes,
Computing Probability Using the Empirical Method Notes
The probability of an event E is approximately the number of
times event E is observed divided by the number of repetitions of
the experiment.

Definition of Independent Events Notes
Two events E and F are independent if and only if
P(F | E) = P(F) or P(E | F) = P(E)

Addition Rule for Mutually Exclusive Events Notes
If E and F are mutually exclusive events, then
P(E or F) = P(E) + P(F)
In general, if E, F, G, are mutually exclusive events, then
P(E or F or G or ) = P(E) + P(F) + P(G) +
Events E and F are Mutually Exc
Probability of Simple Events Notes
Probability is a measure of the likelihood of a random
phenomenon or chance behavior. Probability describes the longterm proportion with which a certain outcome will occur in
situations with short-term uncertainty.
