Technical Engineering and Design Guides, as adapted from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, No. 29
This manual includes the new electronic surveying methods that have changed conventional equipment and procedures in topographic surveying. The manual establishes procedural guidance, specifications, and quality control criteria for performing field topographic surveying in support of planning, engineering and design, construction, and environmental restoration activities. It covers field survey techniques used in performing topographic surveys with modern electronic total stations and electronic data collectors, and it includes procedures for transferring field data to computer-aided drafting and design (CADD) systems or geographic information systems (GIS).
