(hidden; on-site inspection; dimensions; estimates) (2-54)
Although ground reconnaissance is the most thorough and accurate means of obtaining engineer information, it
is very time-consuming. When time is a critical factor, the party leader must adjust the schedule to obtain only the
most-needed items. Incomplete, but timely, information is useful, whereas a complete report received too late to be
acted upon is worthless.
Ground reconnaissance is _________________________ - __________________________ and may have to be
adjusted to a limited schedule. An incomplete but timely report is __________________________________ but a
report to late to be acted upon is ______________________________.
In the "additional remarks and sketch" column, the object is identified and the map location is reported by grid
coordinates, followed by explanatory remarks, calculations, and a sketch if appropriate.
In the final column of the body of the report, the details about the object always include its
_________________________ and map ______________________.
