Facebook: videos for surveyors

By leaps and bounds Facebook it is becoming a common tool for business and educational purposes. As it is an “Internet of people”, companies have looked back at this handful of interconnected people, which has given it a value beyond the conventional social network. One of the best features is in the ability to post videos, I love the ease of viewing them in high resolution and tagging them. On this occasion I show you an example in our interest in the use of CAD tools for the engineering area, the best I have seen since I made one AUGI review. It is the Association of Surveying students of the Autonomous University of Santo Domingo (UASD), Which apparently with the great idea of ​​a person, rather than promoting secure social communion will gain adherents by sharing materials of this quality that are mostly practical class work and others are responses to the AUGI community. Civil facebook videos

To date there are more than 30 videos with exercises explained step by step, mostly with audio and an exaggerated patience in some of them.

Adjustment of plotsAdjustment of plots, is in three parts with background audio. It includes basic concepts such as using functions to transform degrees, minutes, seconds to radians, and basic trigonometry.
Civil 3d hydraulic networksCalculation of Hydraulic networks using AutoCAD Civil 3D 2011. Very explicit showing the losses in a pipe system.
High roads road designRoad design using High Roads, a free software. It is in four sessions, and although the software is a bit old, it is still alive and is very capable. It is displayed from point cloud loading, horizontal alignment, grade line layout, and plan labeling.
Civil 3DSurface Analysis in Civil 3D. Includes the determination of basins and slope map.
preliminary studyAnalysis of Data for preliminary study using Eagle Point and downloading elevation base in Google Earth csv using Digipoint Zonum.
Plant profileRoad design Using Civil 3D from a csv file. It includes the generation of surface area, horizontal layout and generation of profile plant. This is the best, there are a total of 9 sessions that include the design of the typical section and corridor generation.

Other videos include:

  • Calculation of areas and box of bearings using The HW tool
  • Create surface using AutoCAD Civil 3D
  • Create a surface using A DEM USGS
  • Remove COGO points from a runner.
  • Preliminary design of roads down Level curve from Google Earth to Civil 3D.
  • Labeled Of north and east coordinates to each 20 meter
  • Recognizing level curves generated in Civil 3D in Land Desktop. Something similar is seen in another takeaway video from Eagle Point The Civil 3D And also Global Mapper DEM Towards Civil 3D.
  • Animation in Civil 3D using plugins de 3D Studio Max.

La Chascada: If you thought that Facebook is a wave for children who lie in their real ages to be saying nonsense when leaving classes, you will have to check it because if you want to see the videos you will have to register. See you there. Also for those things in life, which are there today and not tomorrow, it is not bad that you download the videos.
