Use and care of surveying instruments; measurement of distances, angles, areas, and volumes; differential and profile leveling, topographic surveying and mapping; use and interpretation of aerial photographs.


An introductory course in photogrammetry; geometry of vertical and near vertical aerial photos; scale determination, elevation by relief displacement; control and flight planning; geometry of stereo photos; parallax measurement; introduction to stereo-plotters.


Analysis and interpretation of patterns in aerial photography; color tones and vegetation, geologic formation, erosion, soil and rock types, drainage, and other engineering works. Also land use and land cover classification will be performed using aerial photography.


Provides a theoretical and practical introduction to remote sensing for geospatial applications. This course focus in concepts and techniques for acquisition, processing, and analysis of remotely sensed data for a variety of application scenarios. Topics include, but are not limited to electromagnetic spectrum, sensor and remote sensing satellites, types of resolution and digital image interpretation and processing.

Principles of geometrical optics and remote sensing applied to Geospatial Science. Acquisition, manipulation and interpretation of geospatial data acquired at different portions of the electromagnetic spectrum.


Measurement of distances, angles and elevations; use of traverse and leveling equipment; measurement of traverses. Traverse, area, and land subdivision computations.
