|Publication Date:||28 February 2011|
Purpose. This manual provides technical specifications and procedural guidance for surveying and mapping with the Global Positioning System (GPS) and other Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS). It is intended for use by planning, engineering, operations, real estate, and construction personnel performing georeferenced feature mapping or geodetic control surveys for all US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) projects to include civil works and military construction. Procedural and quality control standards are defined to establish Corpswide uniformity in the use of GPS by hired-labor personnel, construction contractors, and Architect-Engineer (A-E) contractors.
Applicability. This manual applies to all USACE commands having responsibility for the planning, engineering and design, construction, operation, maintenance, and related real estate and regulatory functions of civil works, military construction, and environmental restoration projects. It applies to GPS survey performance by both hired-labor forces and contracted survey forces. It is also applicable to surveys performed or procured by local interest groups under various cooperative or cost-sharing agreements.
