Branch detail

Geodesy and Cartography


Original title in Czech: Geodézie a kartografie
Abbreviation: GAK
Specialisation: -
Length of Study: 3 years
Programme: Geodesy and Cartography
Faculty: Faculty of Civil Engineering
Academic year: 2017/2018
Accredited from: 26.7.1999
Accredited until: 31.12.2020
Profile of the branch:
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:
  1. 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.

    Tutor: Machotka Radovan, doc. Ing., Ph.D.
  2. Deformation Surveying of Structures and Natural Objects with Global Navigation Satellite Systems

    Methodology of deformation surveying using Global Navigation Satellite Systems according to present state of development. Analysis and critical review of contemporary observation and processing procedures employing permanent and epoch-wise observations. Testing of modified methods of deformation surveying of various object types.

    Tutor: Švábenský Otakar, prof. Ing., CSc.
  3. Geodynamic evaluation of measurement results in GNSS networks in Central European territory from the kinematic and seismic hazard point of view.

    In period 2008 - 2015 Institute of Geodesy realized repeated GNSS measurements at points of MORAVA network and Tetčice and Znojmo polygones. The results are permanently supplemented by data of another geodynamical networks - HIGHLANDS, East Sudeten, CZEPOS a TOPNET. Aim of the disertation is to unify, evaluate the results and realize their interpretation in relation to tectonics and seismic activity in the Central European .

    Tutor: Pospíšil Lubomil, doc. RNDr., CSc.
  4. 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.

    Tutor: Bureš Jiří, Ing., Ph.D.
  5. 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.

    Tutor: Machotka Radovan, doc. Ing., Ph.D.
  6. Methods development of qualitative appreciation of data of progressive measuring techniques via GIS tools on base 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.

    Tutor: Bartoněk Dalibor, doc. Ing., CSc.
  7. 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, Ing., Ph.D.
