The Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) Surveying and Mapping Manual provides an overview of the surveying and mapping functions in the department. This manual contains material that is of both an informational and instructional nature. Guidelines and procedures are spelled out in detail in the hope that greater uniformity and quality can be obtained in surveying and mapping related activities within Mn/DOT.
The manual clarifies policies and procedures technical and professional surveying and mapping personnel use in their day to day work. Using these procedures should result in uniform surveying and mapping practices.
The manual introduces procedures to work with survey equipment now being used throughout Mn/DOT.
The Mn/DOT Surveying and Mapping Manual is periodically revised and supplemented. The most up to date version was published in June of 2007. The 2000 version is made available for historic reference.
