Course detail

Geodesy I

FAST-GE01Acad. year: 2017/2018

Elementary terms related to geodesy and geodetic basics, measuring of directions and angles, direction in space and its components- horizontal and vertical direction, experiments for measuring- theodolite’s construction and construction of its parts, measuring methods of horizontal, vertical directions (angles), errors of measured directions and angles. Centering of measured directions and angles. Measuring of distances with tape. Indirect trigonometric distance measurement. Electronic distance meters, Indirect optical and parallactic distance measuring methods. Errors and accuracy of measured distances. Conversion of measuring data to plane of reference. Processing of geodetic data - basic coordinate computation.
