Highway Surveying. Instructor's Guide for an Adult Course. Highway Technicians Program Unit III.
Fimmano, Ralph; Kacharian, John C.
The revised instructor's guide, which is part of the New York State Highway Technician's Program to provide needed technicians and engineers by upgrading people in the lower-level technician jobs, is geared toward the improvement of technical skills and knowledge in highway surveying. In view of the shortage of qualified technicians and engineers caused by the rapid expansion in the building of State and Federal highways, local school districts and other sponsors of adult education programs are being encouraged to offer the courses in this program as part of occupational education. Each of the fourteen lessons includes enough subject matter for about 2 1/2 hours of classroom instruction. All lessons are written with a content outline on the left half of the page and corresponding teaching points and techniques on the right half of the page. Lessons cover technical skills, such as: elements of surveying; measuring distances; leveling, measurement of angles and directions; the transit; traverse and stadia surveying; field astronomy; horizontal and vertical curvature; preliminary, construction, and final surveys. Also included is a final examination. (EA)
