3. CONTENT DESCRIPTION

Lesson 1. Introduction to Geomatics.

Geomatics techniques: information capture, data processing and modeling, geospatial services and applications. Reference systems. Global positioning and navigation satellite systems (GNSS).

Lesson 2. Geographical Information Systems.

Vector and raster data models. Digital Terrain Models. Data integration. Spatial Data Infrastructures. OGC services. Map servers.

Lesson 3. Techniques for image capture and processing.

Remote sensing. Space programs. Digital image analysis. Terrestrial and airborne photogrammetry. Unmanned aerial systems (UAVs).

Lesson 4. Techniques for point clouds capture and processing.

Terrestrial and aerial LiDAR systems to capture point clouds. Integration of point clouds and images.

Lesson 5. Geoenvironmental mapping.

GIS analysis to environmental studies. Analogic and digital products. Environmental maps. Risk maps.

Practices:

Practice 1. Digital processing and analysis of satellite images.

Practice 2. Data integration and GIS analysis. Mapping.

Practice 3. Processing and obtaining photogrammetric products.

Practice 4. Field observations, data capture and preparation of geoenvironmental maps. Includes a field-work day.

4. COURSE DESCRIPTION AND TEACHING METHODOLOGY

The theory classes will include keynote presentations of the theoretical concepts of the subject and examples, and where appropriate lectures on aspects of interest.

The practical classes will include practical problems to solve with the support of ICT tools in the computer classroom. In addition, two field days will be held, to collect data and make observations that will then be used in the remaining practices.

However, theory classes and problems will be carried out in an integrated way.

Students with special educational needs should contact the Student Attention Service (Servicio de Atención y Ayudas al Estudiante) in order to receive the appropriate academic support

5. ASSESSMENT METHODOLOGY

To pass the subject it will be necessary to pass the theoretical exam and the practices of the subject independently.

The qualification of the subject will be calculated according to the weighting of each of the parties (theory and practices).

Evaluation of competences and learning outcomes:

Theory exam (S2). Competences: CB6, CB7, CB8, CB9, CB10, CT5, E03MHABI, G01MHAB, G03MHABI, G04MHABI. Results: RB6, RB10, RB8, RB9, RG03mHA, RG04mHA, RT3.

Practices (S3). Competences: CB6, CB7, CB8, CB9, CB10, CT3, CT4, CT5, E03MHABI, G01MHABI, G04MHABI. Results: RB6, RB10, RB7, RB7b, RB7c, RB8, RB9, RE03mHA, RG01mHA, RG03mHA, RG04mHA, RT3, RT4, RT5.
