Syllabus
Prerequisites: Knowledge of mathematical analysis, physics and statistics.
Target skills and knowledge: The goal of the Course is to provide at students the theoretical, practical and mathematical tools necessary to perform and manage data from surveys finalized to the execution, knowledge and monitoring both for territory and infrastructure, and their inclusion in the national and international reference systems.
In the Course are deepened the theoretical aspects of the different survey topographic methodologies (classical surveys, GPS, photogrammetry, laser scanning) and analyzed practical applications in different fields for the management of environmental risks. Moreover, are presented and used the main topographic instruments that are employed in the context of different methodologies, hinting to the mathematical procedures for data processing and the final precisions.
Examination methods: Oral examination
Assessment criteria: The evaluation is performed on the basis of the knowledge and abilities acquired by the student, from the ability to identify suitable solutions to solve practical surveys problems, to that demonstrate mastery with the different topics of the Course.
Course unit contents: Introduction in geomatics: overview on principles of Geodesy, Topography and Cartography; instruments for topographic surveying, GPS positioning, processing of data acquired.
High-precisions surveys.
Specific of topographic instruments.
Principles of photogrammetry and Lidar.
Digital Terrain Modelling.
Case studies in high precision surveys in the field of the monitoring of the environmental risks.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Frontal lessons, practical exercises with topographic optical-mechanical and digital instruments and principles of data processing with specific software.
