2. Introduction to survey network design and adjustment.
3. Operational and quality control aspects of electronic distance measurement (EDM), angle measurements, trigonometric heighting and precise levelling.
4. Introduction to satellite positioning, observation techniques and data processing.
5. Introduction to geodetic datums, coordinate systems, map projections, transformations and conversions.
6. Introduction to advanced positioning techniques including; automated field surveying and laser scanning.
