Introduction to Surveying Methods

Audience

Anyone wants to have an overview of land positioning methods.

Content

This interactive course is divided into workshops:

• The RTK workshop begins with an overview of Global Navigation satellite Systems (GNSS) and Rea Time Kinematics (RTK) method, followed by practical applications including:
- Setting up an RTK base stations,
- Reviewing layout and survey seismic points
- Relevant QC steps
• The next module explores GNSS static surveys, looking at how to set up the receiver, record data and calculate the new point position
• Lastly, we review the so-called “conventional surveying” method with respect to surveying in a seismic line using an electronic theodolite, and calculating the points positions

Learning Objectives

• Understand and practice different land positioning methods
• Describe the conventional surveying method
• Understand the principles of data quality controls

Duration

1 1/2-days

Number of Participants

4-20

Prerequisites

Have an idea of the components of a seismic crew, and preliminary experience in the seismic industry

Software Used

GPSeismic, GrafNet

Course Format

Demo, exercises, presentations, on-thejob, workshop, groupwork, site visit, field practice.
