It can be seen from an inspection of the outline that not every subject will apply to every report and that
some of the items must be repeated several times in the same report. For example, items 5, 6, and 7
would have to be repeated for each runway in an airfield and item 4--03 might be omitted for expedient
Frequently, portions of the information shown in the outline will be required at different time intervals.
For this reason, a preliminary report and several supplementary reports may actually be made before the
project is completed. However, if all of the information provided follows the same basic outline, filing
the data and assembling the final report will be greatly simplified.
The type of survey conducted will determine the length and detail of the report. In the hasty survey,
most of the items can be covered in one or two sentences and almost all of the annexes can be omitted.
When a deliberate survey is made, it may be necessary to make a detailed soil profile and detailed plan
drawing might be required.
