You'll get a bound printed text.
This text provides complete coverage of the design and drafting principles and practice used in the civil drafting field, and a working knowledge of the basic topics of mapping–in a workbook format.
Created with input from civil engineering industry professionals and educators and content-tested in the classroom, Civil Drafting Technology is a unique, comprehensive guide to civil drafting in a clear workbook approach. Designed with the goal of providing a foundation of work done by civil engineering companies (associated drawings, skills, and terminology) and a broad education in the civil drafting field, the book acquaints students with the civil drafting discipline, mapping, computer-aided design and drafting (CADD), surveying, locations, distances, angles, directions, contour lines, site plans, horizontal alignments, profiles, earthwork, detail drawings, and geographic information system (GIS). Most of the drawings and maps are generated by specialized CADD software, and a variety of data collected using electronic surveying techniques. The book’s 14 chapters each deal with a specific subject area and provide realistic examples, illustrations, review questions, and problems. The new edition is substantially revised with a number of updates and improvements.
