Short description: During the course the student will learn to make a choice of measurement methods used in surveying investment services and perform surveying observations (stakeout, inventory measurements) using surveying instruments to guarantee efficient and accurate completion of appropriate measuring task under the relevant legislation.
Full description: Getting to know the rules of the investment proces, in the field of surveying service of investment in relation to the law. Getting familiar with the maps used in the investment process. Discussion of the principles of cooperation with different units and investors during the investment. Survey works during the execution of buildings and industrial buildings, compiling the geodetic and cartographic documentation. Surveying services of investment on the example of: transport, slender, linear objects and bridges. Architectural inventory of associated with the revitalization of buildings and degraded areas.
