In this subject a project-based learning is carried out in coordination with the following subjects belonging to this degree: MATHEMATICAL CARTOGRAPHY, GEOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION SYSTEMS, CARTOGRAPHIC PRODUCTION, SPACE DATA INFRASTRUCTURE, THEMATIC CARTOGRAPHY AND GIS SOLUTIONS. Specifically, in the academic year 2018/2019 an Innovative Teaching Project was requested and coordinated by professors from the Department of Cartographic, Geodetic and Photogrammetric Engineering, entitled: PRODATO: A SET OF LINKED CARTOGRAPHY PRACTICES FOR STUDENTS OF THE DEGREE IN GEOMATICS AND TOPOGRAPHY for the realization of a project-based learning.

4. COURSE DESCRIPTION AND TEACHING METHODOLOGY

- Lectures theory where the agenda will be developed and proposed activities through issues, jobs, relationship problems, to encourage student participation.

- The practical classes will begin with an introduction and explanation of the teacher, student participating in the development.

 

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

1. It will be necessary to pass the theory exam and practical assessment in order to pass the entire course.

2. To overcome the theoretical part of the course , you must obtain a minimum score of 5 out of 10 in each of the two parts into which the subject is divided , that is , first items 1, 2, 3 , 4, 7, 13 and 14; and secondly, the items 5, 6 , 8, 9 , 10, 11 and 12.

3. To overcome the practical work must be submitted to be responsible throughout the development of the same, ending in a delivery date prior to the regular call. A student in the Ordinary call not to hand the practices developed in class, must present and defend the proposed practices that teachers of the subject to the Special convocations, within the deadline set by the teachers.
