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.

  • valid for whole curriculum period:

    Photogrammetric bundle block adjustment. In addition, this course gives a computer vision perspective on solving main tasks in photogrammetry, especially by applying homogeneous coordinates and projective geometry. The contents highlight possibilities of automation in photogrammetry by utilizing latest algorithms to find orientations of images and to create photogrammetric 3D point clouds. The course includes also a seminar part in which the recent developments of photogrammetry and computer vision are illustrated.
