The aim of the course is to provide in-depth knowledge of concepts and methods in geodetic surveying, and photogrammetry. The course creates an understanding of the interconnections of geodesy, map projections and geodetic surveying.

Knowledge and understanding
For a passing grade the student must

Explain the fundamental principles of geomatics

Understand and formulate solutions to different practical problems according to the rules and norms.

Skills and abilities
For a passing grade the student must

Apply the methodology to solve geodetic problems in plane and levelling measurements.

Carry out simpler levelling measurements with the help of ordinary least squares (OLS)

Carry out simpler practical field work.

The fundamental principles and definitions of geodesy, map projections, control point surveying, transformations, plane and levelling measurements, theory of errors and tolerances.
