Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Objective of the course students are gaining basic knowledge of geodesy, in terms of mastering the basic principles of methodology for measuring angles and lengths

Teaching methods

Terrain work


The course deals with the measurement of geodetic environment variables and basic concepts of the theory of errors. They discussed methods of measuring angles and lengths and the surveying device described in the relevant conditions and their accuracy.
