Course objectives
Basic principles of photogrammetry are given with the stress 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).
Learning outcomes
Student will be able to:
- to focus on the basic principles of aerial and terrestrial photogrammety
- Ability to use specialized software for photogrammetry
- to design and implement an airborn project in the selected area
- Process and create orthophotomap, digital terrain model
- Have a basic overview of the available technologies in terrestrial, aerial and mobile laser scanning
- find available data sources for photogrammetry

Teaching methods
Lectures explaining basic terms of analogue, analytical and digital photogrammetry. In practical excercises basic examples of analysis are presented step by step. Practical training is based on 2-3 exercises that are solved using special software tools for aerial and satellite imagery (PCI ORTHOENGINE). Correctness and quality of practical excercises is evaluated and info is provided to students as a feedback.
Assessment methods
The exam has the form of a written test on theory of analogue, analytical and digital photogrammetry. Elaboration of all practical excercises and successul practical test at the end of the term are two necessary conditions for passing the exam. Practical test with the use of computer.
