    You could start with a general search for Penn Foster. You could also search on the project number.

    Thanks for reply,

    Im sorry I couldn't find any thread for this specific project No. 05404401 elective project(civil drafting). I have been confused in the following paragraph mentioned in project booklet pg 30. The rectangular area to be surveyed is located in a state in which all surveys are based on the metes and bounds sustem. In this system, the origin (or point 0,0) for the survey is at some known point. That known point could be the corner of another parcel of land, a benchmark, or a premanent fixture of some kind. In this project, the known point will be Bench Mark 1006. The southwest corner of the rectangular area to be surveyed is 563.37' from BM#1006 at a bearing of S43D52'41".
    So the value of bearing S43D52'41" doesn't seem right as it doesn't ends with E or W (direction).Iwould greatful to u if u please guide me how to deal with this bearing value.I am just assuming that it should be s43d52'41"w, but not sure,not confident.

    Thanks
    Thanks

    Yes, one would expect the bearing to be complete with the E/W direction.

    I'll have to switch over to my CAD computer and see if I have a copy of this project. As the Terminator was wont to say.....

    I'll be back.

    OK....I'm back. Are we talking about the Olsen Village project?

    Thanks for the PDF.

    It looks familiar in one respect. I think it is a revised version of the old Project 6. The student lays out a grid, adds all the spot elevations and using those interpolates new elevations to establish the contours.

    The old Project 6 started out like this:

    "Ms. Capitano is a property owner who wants to build a residence on her land. The land is an odd-shaped piece of property in a relatively hilly area on the outskirts of town. Before she decides on the actual location for her house, she hires The Spinone Firm, a civil engineering company, to survey the existing roadways, buildings, trees, and contoursof the land. The company will conduct this survey at 10-foot contour intervals."

    I agree with your earlier assessment that the bearing should be to the southwest. I've started reading ahead and found another error. The coordinates for the first of thirty existing trees is given as 106440,-72.12 which does not look right compared to all the other coordinates listed. Someone at P-F did not have the PDF thoroughly proof read.
