About this course

Modern surveying plays a decisive role in modern society by contributing to a more efficient and sustainable management of land and resources. In this field course you will learn: planning, reconnaissance and execution of geodetic measurements.

After the data collection, you work in groups with analysis and calculation based on your own observations. The results are documented through methods such as: outlier detection, testing of existing reference frames and reliability analysis in relation to the geodata standard.

Learning outcome

Master the planning, field work and analysis of geodetic measurements. There will be great emphasis on quality assurance and connections to relevant standards.
  • All learning activities in this course are done in groups. First part consists fieldwork and data collection based on general methods in land surveying. Second part consists of analysis and processing of own observations. The work is presented as groupwise reports and a presentation.
