Knowledge and understanding:
The student, at the end of the course, should have a deeper knowledge of surveying discipline, of topography and cartography; should have developed a wide vision of photogrammetry and digital imaging from a theoretical point of view; should have developed a basic understanding of laser scanning applications; should have developed a wide vision of remote sensing applications.
Applying knowledge and understanding:
At the end of the course the student should be capable of performing a topographical and photogrammetrical survey design in every step: calibration, ground point surveying, image acquisition, orientation and restitution and final accuracy evaluation; the student should also be capable of manage and classifying remotely sensed data; practical activities will allow the student to develop basic 3D modelling skills.
At the end of the course the student should have developed basic judgment skills to evaluate the best surveying techniques (in case integrated) to be applied to a generic engineering problem (territorial or architectural survey, reverse engineering application, monitoring activities, etc.) as well as the ability to assess the correctness and quality of a photogrammetric survey.
At the end of the course the student should have developed a good (surveying) terminology and should be able to correctly express concepts and ideas.
The final seminar activities should bring the student to develop a good understanding of the more recent features and issues of geomatics, both in terms of photogrammetric and image processing and of applications of geomatics to engineering: in fact the student should be capable of autonomously investigate such fields.
