Topographic Surveying

This is our contour map of XU Soccer Field (from goal post in front of ICC to goal post in front of Eng'g Bldg.). Surveying by open traverse was used (since the area is small), with the vertical circle set to 0 degrees. Point A was assumed to have a 1.000 meters elevation.

AutoCAD was used in the map-making. Index contour lines were set to 0.05 meters.

Downloadable Data Sheet (use Export option): Topographic Survey of XU Soccer Field Data

The data sheet provided was the one we used in the field. It can calculate elevations instantly upon entering the data. Succeeding worksheets are used for interpolation during map making.
