Field Data Capture
Module code: GY7711
This module is field-based and is primarily taught intensively over a week. The module covers a variety of technologies used in the field for capturing primary digital geomatic information. Technologies include Terrestrial Laser Scanning, Total Station surveying, and Structure from Motion photogrammetry. After a series of introductory lectures and practicals, students will collaborate during the field week to capture data using these state-of-the-art technologies, and then process the data through to 3D representation in a GIS system. This module is of interest to those students who are interested in geomatics, surveying and 3D modelling of geospatial data for GIS or Remote Sensing.
