Survey Camp

Survey Camps are part of surveying and Geospatial Engineering courses GMAT3150 and GMAT4150 Field Projects held at Berry Sport and Recreation Centre or Cataract Scout Park. GMAT3150 is a 4-day off campus extensive practical training and 1 day on-campus field work. The aim is to broaden and deepen the knowledge of surveying instrumentation, field methods, and surveying software in a team of 3-4 students and various tasks. A specific task at higher level is usually be carried out by 4th year students enrolled in GMAT4150. The site photo below was taken using a drone during UAS aerial photogrammetry practice in July 2016.
