The aim of this course consits of a theoretical and practical introduction to elaboration of territorial data and information, whit special attention to geomatics applied to Environmental and Earth Sciences.
01.02 Remote sensing: Aerial Photos and Satellite Imagery
01.03 Introduction to Global Positioning System
01.04 LIDAR: terrestrial and aerial laser scanning
02. Geographic Information System
02.01 Digital cartography and territorial data bases
02.02 Geographic file format
02.05 Open source GIS : Quantum GIS
03. Digital survey
03.01 Mobile GIS
03.02 Tablet PC
03.04 Digital photography
Although there are no mandatory prerequisites for this exam, students are strongly recommended to take it after Integrated Geographical Databases.
Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)
Knowledge and understanding
The student will acquire the knowledge of the systems currently used in various fields of geomatics, understanding also the methodological bases.
Applaying knowledge and understanding
The course is strogly practical. The student will apply the knowledge propre during all stages of the course and the term will be able to implement all its skills.
The student will also be able to work on projects, developing skills that allow him/her to deal with unexpected situations and find original solutions.
The student will be able to communicate in different ways (reports, presentations, etc.) the results and synthesisof his/her work.
Learning skillsSince this branch of computer science applied to geosciences is constantly and rapidly changing, the student will be able to learn for themselves the new techniques and methodologies.
The teaching material prepared by the lecturer in addition to recommended textbooks (such as for instance slides, lecture notes, exercises, bibliography) and communications from the lecturer specific to the course can be found inside the Moodle platform › blended.uniurb.it
