The general objectives are multiple: On the one hand, students learn the basic concepts / principles of Geodesy and on the other hand, the acquisition of practical knowledge (through laboratory exercises), in order to acquire important skills for applying their knowledge. At the same time, current technologies and future trends are presented, so that the students become aware of modern applications. The indirect goal of the course is for the student to acquire a methodological ability to discover innovative knowledge for Geodesy.
Describes and analyzes the main research questions in Geodesy.
Knows the measurement methods and instruments needed to resolve any problem.
Knows the calculation methods which will be needed to resolve any problem.
Knows the methods of drawing topographic diagrams.
Combines measurement methods as well as instruments for problem resolving.
Can develop critical thinking and responsible scientific and professional behavior.
During the laboratory exercises the students are requested to apply combinatorial methods for answering.
At the same time, the homework is structured in such a way as to encourage critical thinking and ability
Extensive knowledge and critical understanding of the theory and principles of Geodesy.
Knowledge and skills in topography
Acquisition, analysis and reporting of measurement data information, using current technology advancements
Acquisition, analysis and reporting of measurement data information, using current technology advancements (Understanding the operation and use of equipment (Geodetic Station, GPS, etc.)
Group Assignment exercises (Discussion ability, enhancing self-thinking and accuracy of implementation
Understanding the basic principles of Geodesy, which is the foundation of designing plans, maps, etc. on all scales ((city section and city-region section)
The course’s content is designed so that the students can deepen in the basic concepts of the science of Geodesy which were presented in the course “Topography-Geodesy”. Elaborated case studies are presented, such as open and closed traverse methods, photogrammetry methods, etc. An integrated semester exercise is assigned to groups of students. The course consists of the following 13 lectures:
Lecture 4: Network hierarchy and classification II
Lecture 5: Network hierarchy and classification III
Lecture 6: Height measurement and the levelling instrument
Lecture 7: Topographic surveying: from terrain to map
Lecture 8: Construction surveying
Lecture 9: Greek Cadastral system
Lecture 10: Digital Terrain Models
Lecture 11: Levelling methods
Lecture 12: Modern advances in Geodesy / GPS
Lecture 13: Laboratory exams
Determination of weight
The evaluation criteria are accessible to students from the course’s website and are announced repeatedly in both lecture lectures and laboratory courses. During the semester, students are informed about the grades/scores of the laboratory exercises through the e-class platform.
Transparency in evaluation is ensured in the following ways:
a) Students are aware of the evaluation’s measures from the first week of the semester
b) For each laboratory exercise they deliver, they are informed of the score/grade and of their errors. Then they can resubmit the corrected version of the exercise.
c) Finally, when the results of the written exams are announced, students have a reasonable amount of time (updated through an announcement) to ask for re-evaluation
