Course objectives
Main objectives is to learn basic principles of photogrammetry with the focus on digital photogrammetry. Methods of aerial imaging are mentioned. Mathematical principles of single-image methods and stereo phtogrammetry are mentioned. Individual stages of digital photogrammetric products are outlined (data acquisition, DTM processing, orthophoto creation). At the end of this course, students should be able to prerare their own products of digital photogrammetry - especially orthopohoto and digital tewrrain mofdel generated from two overlaping images. Program Orthonengine (PCI Geomatica) is utilized during practical exercises. Students would be able to explain when to apply individual image processing methods and make reasoned decisions about preconditions that are necessary for proper utilization of photogrammetric methods in question. He/she would be able to work with information on data preparation, make deductions based on acquired knowledge and properly interpret and evaluate results.

Teaching methods
Lectures explaining basic terms of analytical and digital photogrammetry and presenting individual examples step by step. Practical training based on exercises that are solved using single photo and stere photogrammetry software.
Assessment methods
An exam has the form of written test on theory of photogrammetry. Elaboration of all practical excercises and successul pass the practical test at the end of the term are two necessary conditons to advance to the main theoretical examination. Practical test with the use of computer.
