AbstractAdvanced topics in geodetic metrology with focus on instrumental and methodic aspects for applications with higher accuracy demands.
ObjectiveThe students acquire enhanced knowledge regarding the operating mode, the application and the limitations of modern geodetic standard instruments. They will be able to properly select, test and apply these instruments for geodetic tasks with higher accuracy requirements. They will get acquainted with the typical workflow from the preparation of the field works to the digital or plotted plan. Finally, the students will be introduced to specific geodetic tasks related to construction and civil engineering.
Content- The geomatics workflow
