Description of Task

I will be teaching you how to edit line work on a software called MicroStation. You will be observing aerial imagery and look for areas where the line work is not lined up with plainimetric lines. This line work is later on used for the calculation of storm water charge for every property based on the area enclosed in lines.

Rationale
