Please note! Course description is confirmed for two academic years, which means that in general, e.g. Learning outcomes, assessment methods and key content stays unchanged. However, via course syllabus, it is possible to specify or change the course execution in each realization of the course, such as how the contact sessions are organized, assessment methods weighted or materials used.
To understand the principles of least-squares adjustment, and how to apply it to geodetic and photogrammetric problems. To understand how precision and reliability can be handled with least-squares methods. To realize the versatile possibilities of least-squares methods, and the diverse of implementations.
