Aim of the field trip

In this course students will learn the practical aspects to modern high-precision space- and ground-based geodetic techniques, such as LiDAR and GPS technology. They learn how to operate the 3-D Light-Detection-and-Ranging scanner (LiDAR) and the high-precision space-geodetic mapping devices (e.g., GPS) in the field, including real-time kinematic observations and post-processing techniques. The theoretical portion of this course is offered as Quantitative Geological Mapping I. Students are strongly encouraged to enroll in this course concurrently.
