Although we do not yet know how long the social distancing related to the Covid-19 pandemic will last, and regardless of the changes that had to be made in the evaluation of the June 2020 session in relation to what is provided for in this learning unit description, new learnig unit evaluation methods may still be adopted by the teachers; details of these methods have been - or will be - communicated to the students by the teachers, as soon as possible.
At the end of this learning unit, the student is able to :
a. Contribution of this activity to the AA reference (program AA)
M1.1., M2.1., M2.3., M4.5
b. Specific formulation for this training activity of program
At the end of the course LBIRE2106, students are able to:
- To mobilize the basic concepts and methods of geodesy, topography, photogrammetry and mathematical cartography (reference systems, map projections);
- To conduct an error assessment and achieve the quality control of a land measurement campaign;
- To adapt to technological advances thanks to the acquired theoretical bases;
- Technically master some instruments and software in the field of surveying, of map publishing and advanced use of GPS positioning systems.
This knowledge will enable the student to use these methods and techniques operationally in the context of other courses.
The contribution of this Teaching Unit to the development and command of the skills and learning outcomes of the programme(s) can be accessed at the end of this sheet, in the section entitled “Programmes/courses offering this Teaching Unit”.
The whole course consists of six modules:
- Global Positioning Systems
- Geodetic Elements
- Lab introducing measurement instruments and associated software, including a photogrammetry software;
- Integrated exercise in field surveying
Teaching aims developing a practical knowledge of basic instruments and computer tools in order to enable the processing and editing of measurements. This allows the student to link all the needed concepts and instruments to design a complete measurement chain in order to tackle in an autonomous way different problems of positioning in a 3-D space.
2. Additional explanations
The part A of the course BIRE2106A Topometry and Photogrammetry includes theoretical courses on surveying and positioning systems (GPS), the practical work and the integrated exercise but does not include the photogrammetry module and the corresponding aspects in the integrated exercise.
The theoretical knowledge and practical of this course are mobilized in other courses in different programs.
This course can be given in English.
