2. Planning measurement accuracy in engineering geodesy - accuracy analysis.

3. Planning the accuracy of measurements in engineering geodesy - accuracy analyzes.

4. Measuring and setting out lengths (direct and indirect measurement, methods, corrections, accuracy, parallax).

5. Measurement and setting out of horizontal and zenith angles (methods, correction, accuracy - influences without derivation). Measurement and marking of vertical lines (methods).

6. Positional set out networks (surface and line networks, methods, accuracy - without derivation). Positional marking (methods, accuracy, simple geometric elements).

7. Height set out networks and height set out (line, plane, chimney, etc.), spatial set out networks.

Marking out arcs - analytical solution of the route (main elements and main points of the circular arc, detailed marking, basic tasks).
