Course Description

This unit of competency specifies the outcomes required to perform geodetic surveying computations to solve a range of geodetic surveying problems. The unit covers applying mathematical concepts and formulas to geodetic components and performing computations relating to reference surfaces and projection planes. It covers using techniques for data reduction and checking data. It requires the ability to analyse data to comply with standards, and to consult with others to clarify and report on work tasks.
