Doctoral study graduate (Ph.D.) in specialization Geodesy and Cartography is linked up to the magister degree of Geodesy and Cartography.
The study programme offers two specializations: Geodesy, and Cartography. Doctoral student has to absorb required amount of enlarged mathematical-physical basic knowledge. In addition he has to pass through the subjects of special applied basis including the methods of measurement, the evaluation, and analysis of geodetic and cartographic data, the physical geodesy, the satellite and space geodesy, geographic and cartographic information systems and others. Further subjects are added according to scopes of the dissertation thesis. Firstly it concerns the fields of geodetic controls, engineering geodesy, global positioning systems, photogrammetry and remote sensing, cadastre of real estates, digital cartography, and others. In course of doctoral studies the graduate adopts methodology of scientific work, and gets deep theoretical and language knowledge which qualifies him for individual creative scientific activity. Doctoral study graduate in specialization Geodesy and Cartography can be employed in development and research institutions of appropriate specialization, and also as academic staff at universities.
Issued topics of Doctoral Study Program
- Calibration of measuring devices employed in building activities on a sea bed
Building activities on a sea bed are related mainly with oil and gas extraction or with construction of wind power plants. Special on board equipment is used for positioning and orientation of employed ships or theirs parts. Accuracy higher then 10 cm in position is required and so the equipment has to be calibrated at the start of each project. At present, no clear rules for performing such calibrations exist. Goal of the theme is proposal of calibration methodologies based on analysis of current state of affairs.
- Deformation surveying with Global Navigation Satellite Systems technology
Current methodology of deformation surveying using Global Navigation Satellite Systems according to present state of development. Analysis and critical review of contemporary observation and processing techniques employing permanent and epoch-wise observations. Testing of modified methods of deformation surveying of various object types.
- Geometrical accuracy in building industry
The theme of the work is the issue of the geometric accuracy construction. The methodology will be resolved by the check measurement of geometric parameters of structures using the geodetic measurement technology (robotic total stations, GNSS, laser scanning, etc.) and their documentation as part of the construction quality. Part of the solution is the analysis of the product standards (the Eurocodes) in terms of the geometric accuracy of the structures in the context setting out standards.

- Indoor mobile mapping
The goal of the theme is development of mobile mapping and 3D modeling system for building interiors. In the first step, capturing of closed spaces with flat floors will be solved. Future aiming will depend on deep research of customers demands as same as overall trends in the particular segment of market.
- Integrated model of quasigeoid for territory of south Moravia
There are available several models of quasigeoid on the territory of the Czech Republic. There has been used various data and methods for their creation. There will by useful -to evaluate methods their creation -to propose methods for the integrated model of quasigeoid creation (with expoitation of additional data).
- Integrating GPS & InSAR to Resolve Stressing Rates Along the Main fault on theMorava territory
Integrating GPS and InSAR velocities may be key to improving strain rate accuracy and resolution – information that is critical for assessing seismic hazards. Strain rate, which is typically greatest within 10-50 km of an active fault, is calculated by taking the spatial derivative of measured crustal velocities. GPS and InSAR, when optimally integrated, will be the primary geodetic tools for resolving crustal strain rate in the most critical regions of our active areas.
- Methods development of qualitative appreciation of data of progressive measuring techniques via GIS tools on the basis of operational analysis
The subject of the topic is the development of methods of qualitative data evaluation of advanced surveying technology tools GIS-based operational research, including qualitative evaluation and optimization of data acquired technologies, laser scanning, photogrammetry and GNSS. The aim is to effective data extraction, increase their information content and practical usability. The solution will be the optimization of data collection based on the analysis of e.g. operational graph algorithms.
- Monitoring of Structures
The theme of the doctoral work is the issue of structure monitoring. Automated continuous measurement or epochs measurement using electronic measuring stations of different types will be solved. The solution will be a methodology for measuring, the issue of the integration of disparate data and their evaluation, graphical representation of the results, the analysis of the accuracy and interpretation of the results.
Tutor: Bureš Jiří, doc. Ing., Ph.D.
- Optimizing the acquisition and processing of data acquired from unmanned vehicles
In the last 5 years there has been a large increase in the number of companies using data from unmanned vehicles.This is a large number of pictures and consequently a huge number of generated points, in many cases completely redundant. The aim is to analyze the parameters of experimental imaging and scanning and subsequent processing, including calibration flights.
