Overview
This course is ideal for individuals in surveying, engineering and related fields who encounter real-world problems involving the intersection of features on the earth's surface represented by lines and circular curves.  It is equally of interest to field surveyors, as well as those who design, analyze and post-process surveying data.  The course begins with a discussion of the methods used for analyzing problems.  Then four types of intersection problems are presented in detail, covering the mathematical theory, the solution and a worked out resolution to a sample problem.  The method presented is to concentrate on understanding the problem well enough to construct a triangle and then using the tools presented in this course to determine which method should be applied to solve the triangle.

Suggested Prerequisites:  ​
Basic analytic geometry, coordinate geometry and triangle solving skills are developed in this course.  The learner must be familiar with equations for lines, curves, and the trigonometric functions.  If coursework or travers computation experience is limited, Traverse Computations I, and Traverse Computations II are highly recommended before taking this course.
Objective(s)
Learners who successfully complete this course will receive a certificate of completion for 1 professional development hours.

Joseph V.R. Paiva is CEO of GeoLearn, LLC (www.geo-learn.com), which is launching an online professional education business for the geospatial industry in early 2014. Joe started this business with his partner Bob Morris, whose most recent global industry position was President of Leica Mapping. Previously, Dr. Paiva was CTO of SADAR 3D and COO of Gatewing NV, a Belgian unmanned airborne systems company. Prior engagements in consulting were in the field of geomatics and general business, particularly to international developers, manufacturers and distributors of instrumentation and other geomatics tools. Dr. Paiva and Mr. Morris continue to be involved in consultancy through a separate partnership called GeoSpatial Associates, LLC will continue this consultancy. Joe’s career includes: managing director of Spatial Data Research, Inc., a GIS data collection, compilation and software development company; various assignments at Trimble Navigation Ltd. including senior scientist and technical advisor for Land Survey research & development, VP of the Land Survey group, and director of business development for the Engineering and Construction Division; vice president and a founder of Sokkia Technology, Inc., guiding development of GPS- and software-based products for surveying, mapping, measurement and positioning. He has also held senior technical management positions in The Lietz Co. and Sokkia Co. Ltd. Prior to that was assistant professor of civil engineering at the University of Missouri-Columbia, and a partner in a surveying/civil engineering consulting firm. He has continued his interest in teaching by serving as an adjunct instructor for online course development and teaching at the Missouri University of Science and Technology. His key contributions in the development field are: design of software flow for the SDR2, SDR20 series and SDR33 Electronic Field Books and software interface for the Trimble TTS500 total station. He is a registered Professional Engineer and Professional Land Surveyor, has served as ACSM representative to the Accrediting Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), serving as a program evaluator, team chair, and commissioner and has more than 30 years experience working in civil engineering, surveying and mapping. He writes for POB, GeoDataPoint and The Empire State Surveyor magazines and has been a past contributor of columns to Civil Engineering News. Joe has also been a consultant to the Geomatics Industry Association of America, later reorganized under the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) as the Geospatial Industry Group, Joe has organized and presented workshops and authored and edited articles for the technical press in this role.
