SUR 4510 - Map Projections and Coordinate Systems

Credits: 3

Prerequisite(s): Senior standing; SUR 3700 with a grade of “C” or better, or Permission of instructor

Description: This is an in-depth course addressing the popular conformal map projections employed in surveying and mapping programs. The theories for the Lambert conformal conic, Mercator, transverse Mercator, oblique Mercator and stereographic, and Albers equal area projections are presented. Designing the projection system, transformation between plane coordinates and geodetic positions and the conversion of survey data to map projection data are emphasized. The use of local conformal map projections will be presented.
