"This thesis was undertaken to ascertain the feasibility of incorporating the United States Geological Survey methods of surveying and computing into a course of study in the Civil Engineering curriculum. It has been the author's opinion that a course of study could be tendered, as a definite project, which incorporates fundamental surveying and advanced surveying. The author's planned course of study was a method of third order transit traverse survey streamlining the method used by the United States Geological Survey. The time element and weather were the essential factors in the planning. In the advanced surveying course there are eighteen weeks of three hour laboratory periods of which two-thirds are to be allocated for obtaining field data and one-third are to be allocated for computing and compiling the field data"--Introduction, page 1-2.
