During this course students are introduced to observational methods for data capture using surveying equipment. Data capture fundamentals remain regardless of the rapid technological advances in data capturing equipment, acquisition and processing procedures. Focus is therefore placed on basic data capture concepts, basic data capture measurements, field and office work, data capture instruments and modern data capture as they pertain to Indigenous communities on-Reserve.
This course will be delivered using in-classroom lectures at TRU, practical field work and an online component for distance learning. Lectures will teach data capture theory required to form a foundation of knowledge to later build upon. Practical field work will provide an opportunity to unlock and reinforce the theoretical knowledge gained. The online component will facilitate the distance learning component and foster collaboration.
This is the second course in the First Nation Applied Lands Management Certificate.
