AbstractDevelopment of concepts and solutions for challenging tasks in Engineering Geodesy using real-world examples
ObjectiveThe students learn to develop, assess and realize concepts and solutions for real-world problems in Engineering Geodesy. They advance the knowledge and skills which they have acquired in relation with geodetic metrology, engineering geodesy. They establish links between these subjects. Particular attention is paid to the selection of appropriate sensors and measurement systems, selection of appropriate measurement and data processing methods, end-to-end quality control, fulfillment of non-technical criteria, and to the documentation of the work.
ContentEngineering geodetic network measurements will planned, optimized, carried out and analyzed. The students work in teams. They choose the appropriate instruments and procedures. They determine, which tests and checks are needed and carry them out autonomously. Finally, the network design, the observation schedule, potential impacts affecting the achieved accuracy and the results will be critically evaluated.
Lecture notesPublications and documents are made available as needed depending on the selected tasks.

Prerequisites / NoticeSuccessful participation in the lab requires knowledge and experiences conveyed within the related course "Engineering Geodesy". Students who have not already passed that course and who are not participating in that course will only be admitted to the lab after discussion with the instructors.

If the timetable of the participants allows it, the 3-hourly lab units will partially be combined to individual full-time units.
