Mastering the work in the most common geodetic computational programs (Groma, GEUS) and the basics of creating and working with a terrain model in the AtlasDMT program.
Learning Outcomes of the Course Unit
Exercises are conducted through targeted acquisition of skills, support and development to address specific semester projects. Exercises, students work with software, focusing on applications in the areas of geodesy.
