Harvey A. Crouch, P.E.
This two-hour course discusses the key elements of railroad surveys, including profiles, cross-sections, and topographic surveys. Railroad surveying terms and practices are very unique compared with surveys for highways and other utilities. When performing survey or design work that impacts or includes railroads, it is important to have an understanding of the basic railroad survey criteria and terms so that ideas and designs can be properly communicated. This course will enable the designer to communicate effectively when submitting surveys or plans for review by a railroad or regulatory agency involved in crossing permits, or new construction. This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
* If you are a registered professional land surveyor in Florida, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Tennessee, Texas or Vermont, you need to take the approved courses for that specific state under the course category "Surveying & Mapping".
