  1. 1. Surveying Equipment
  2. 2. Measuring Distance• The historical method for measuring distance is the surveying chain. – One of the first chains used in the U.S. was the Gunter’s chain. – The Gunter’s chain was a series of links attached to a handle which included an adjustment for wear. – The chain was 22 yards (66 ft) long. Modern chains are metal strips 100 feet long. 2
  3. 3. Modern ChainsModern surveying chains are three standard types. Fully graduated  First foot (cut chain)  Extended foot (add chain) 3
  4. 4. Reading Surveying Steel ChainThe first step in reading a surveying chain is to determine the unitsthat are used.• Knowing that the chain is 100 feet long, having numbers from 0 to 100 indicates that each number is one foot of distance.• Each foot has nine (9) lines (10 spaces), therefore each line represents 1/10 or 0.10 of a foot.• The reading for this example is 98.6 ft. Note: this a fully graduated chain 4
  5. 5. Reading A Cut ChainThe first foot or cut chain gets its name from the fact that the whole footreading at the head of the chain must be reduced “cut” by the partial foot.In this example the pin at the head is on 99 feet and the rear pin ison 0.4 feet. The distance is 99 - 0.4 or 98.6 feet. 5
  6. 6. Reading An Add ChainThe extended foot (add) chain gets its name because anadditional foot is added to each end of the chain.• The partial foot is added to the foot value at the head of the chain.• In this example the head pin is on 99 feet an the rear pin is at 0.7 feet. The distance is 99 + 0.7 or 99.7 ft. 6
  7. 7. Steel chain on holder To rewind chain on holder: 1. Hold holder vertical in the left hand. 2. Attach 100 foot end of the tape with the numbers up. 3. Wind tape up rotating the handle clockwise. 4. Remember to wipe tape with a dry cloth as it is wound onto the handle. 7
  8. 8. Odometer WheelOdometer wheels usedifferent units on theodometers. Insure you know the measuring units before you start to use the wheel. 8
  9. 9. Range finderRange finders are used to measure OPTICAL RANGE FINDERdistance.Two primary types are optical andEDM.Optical range finders use lenses,mirrors and principles trig todetermine distance. 9
  10. 10. Range finder - EDMEDM = Electronic distance measuringMany different models.Many different features.Many different prices. (Precision) 10
  11. 11. Principles of EDMLaser light and other signals travelat the speed of light.If you know speed and time, youcan calculate distance.Multiple signals are used todetermine partial cycles. ∆ιστανχεςελοχιτψ = ∆ιστανχε = ςελοχιτψ ξ Τιµε Τιµε 11
  12. 12. Hand levelThis is the simplest type of handlevel.It is useful for estimating slope &elevation changes. This instrument is called the Abney level. It can be used to measure slope, vertical angles and stadia distances. 12
  13. 13. Rod 7.04The Philadelphia style rod is seven (7)feet long and has a scale that measureto 1/100 of a foot. 6.73Each whole foot is marked with a largered number.A small red foot number is located atthe 1/3 foot mark.The black numbers between each redfoot mark are 1/10th of a foot. 6.33The 1/100ths are read by reading thetransitions between white and black. 6.15 13
  14. 14. Rod with TargetThe use of a target improves theaccuracy of the readings andincreases the readable distancebetween the rod and theinstrument.Using the Vernier scale on thetarget, distances can be read to1/1000 of a foot.A rod with target can be used four ways. 1.Direct read 2.Indirect read 3.High rod 4.Extended rod 14
  15. 15. Dumpy (Wye) Level 15
  16. 16. Leveling a four (4) legged instrument Left thumb rule 16
  17. 17. Automatic LevelThese levels are called automatic because the level will completethe leveling process once it is close to level. 17
  18. 18. Laser LevelSurvey quality laser levels are designed with two features: Visible or non-visible Rotating or non-rotating 18
  19. 19. Total StationA total station is an electronic transitand an EDM combined into oneinstrument.Add in a microprocessor, laserplummet and other options and youhave the instrument of choice forground based surveying.Some may require a prism, but othersare reflectorless. 19
  20. 20. TransitTransits are the mostversatile mechanicalinstrument.They are also the mostcomplicated.Most have been supplantedby total stations. 20
  21. 21. Angle scale with VernierMain scale reading Vernier scale Line of coincidentMechanical instruments use Vernier scales to improve the precision ofthe instrument.The Vernier scale divides the last unit on the main scale into anotherset of fractional parts.The main scale is read at the zero (0) on the Vernier scale.The Vernier scale is read at the line of coincident. What is the reading for this angle scale? 26.5o 21
  22. 22. Double Vernier Scale RotationThe double Vernier is read using the same method.One additional step when reading a double Vernier is deciding whichside of the Vernier should be read.This is determined by the direction of rotation of the instrument.[Note: the angle scale is stationary and the Vernier scale rotates] Clockwise rotation (right turned) = Left side Counter clockwise rotation (Left turned) = Right side 22
  23. 23. Rocking the rodRocking the rod should be used when a rod level isnot available. 23
