Summary
The course aims to develop students' basic knowledge and orientation in the subject of geodesy. They will get acquainted with the principles, methods and processing of angular and longitudinal measurements in geodesy. It also gains an overview of basic nomenclature, allowing it to be easier to orientate in related subjects. Extended knowledge of geodesy in construction, legislative framework of building geodesy, precise measurement methods, measurement of building shifts, o GNSS measurement technology.
