Learning Outcomes (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

To be able to plan the base network hierarchy necessary for geodetic  control of mapping processes. To appreciate the need for complementary  terrestrial measurements to complete the raw material for mapping  collected by aerial techniques, as well as produce the ground truth. To  be able to, irrespective of mapping technology used, make sure that a  correct, consistent and precise geodetic reference frame will be used  for mapping. To understand and apply the complete photogrammetric  mapping process and create input data for geoinformation systems.  To  understand and apply the complete laser scanning mapping process and  create input data for geoinformation systems. To understand stages of the remote sensing process and create input data for  geoinformation systems. To understand mapping and data policy issues. To  understand digital maps: formats, standards, legend design,  accessibility and delivery policies. To understand and apply scale  dependent generalization of maps. To be able to place names on maps.

Content (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

The course gives a theoretical and practical overview of mapping processes including establishment of the coordinate frame, data acquisition, data processing, and map design and compilation. In the process, geodetic, photogrammetric, remote sensing, and cartographic methods are applied. Mapping processes are discussed also from production economic and data policy points of view.
