Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Present basic methods of calculating the point location in planar coordinate systems and geodetic bases of Czech Republic.

Teaching methods

Terrain work


As a preliminary issue addressed the shape and size of the Earth and its replacement of the reference surface (geoid, spheroid, general and reference ellipsoid). Subsequently, students are familiar with the basics of geodesy CR (position and heigh) and the related coordinate and elevation systems used in the CR, including the current spatial systems (WGS-84, ETRS89). Important parts are dealt coordinate calculations, which are among the primary foundations of the course Geodesy.
