OPEN TRAVERSE WORKSHEET

Open Traverse Lab

SVT101
OPEN TRAVERSE LAB

Download the Open Traverse Worksheet from Brightspace. Use this worksheet to display your
calculations. Using the homework standards, use additional sheets (81/2 x 11 copy paper or
graph paper) for calculations. Submit scans of your Open Traverse Worksheet and additional
calculations. DO NOT calculate the last two columns (“Balanced Azimuths” nor “Balanced
Distances”)

Angles and azimuths may be rounded to integer seconds. The final answer of your calculations
will be the coordinates. Thus you may round your coordinate answers to 2 places to the right of
the decimal point (the same precision as the field distances). All other calculations must be
rounded to 3 places to the right of the decimal (to minimize error by dilution of precision).

The open traverse starts at Point “A” and ends at Point “F”. You must hold the given
coordinates for Point “A” and for Point “F”. You must also hold the initial azimuth of traverse
leg A-B, and you must also hold the ending azimuth for traverse leg E-F.

Using the Open Traverse Worksheet and following the procedure outlined in the lecture,
calculate Column 3 (Unadjusted Azimuth); Column 4 (Adjusted Angle); and Column 5
(Adjusted Azimuth). Also calculate Latitudes and Departures. Using the Compass Rule,
calculate Latitude Corrections and Departures Corrections. Using these corrections, calculate the
Adjusted Latitudes and the Adjusted Departures. Finally, calculate the coordinates for each
traverse station A to F.
