GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF THE COURSE
Students are introduced with the importance of GIS and spatial data at every day interventions in environment.
Students are introduced with modern technologies and procedures for detailed land survey.
Students get acquainted with the basic open coded available software tools like QGIS, Grass, InterIMAGE and SPRING and some ESRI software and modules.
After the exam students can independently acquire spatial data in the field (with proper equipment), processes, transform, analyze, manage and queries the data and draw the relevant synthesized thematic maps.
- Student can find, run and adequately use different open source software tools for GIS and spatial analysis
- The student is able to transform and translate spatial data for the purpose of proper placement in space.
- Student know how to queries spatial data and analyze it for their own needs and from them obtain new data and information.
- The student will acquire knowledge and competences to make a simple geodetic plan as a geodetic graphic display associated primarily with the design and construction of new facilities at the manufacturing stage of the project documentation for the purpose of obtaining a building permit and technical documentation for the purpose of registration in official records.
- Knowledge and understanding of basic concepts of legality and procedures of detailed terrestrial surveying.
- Student understand the meaning of public economic infrastructure.
The course will cover the following topics:
- Detail geodetic measurements: the purpose and the methods of surveying.
- Procedures for surveying, planning, design, coding, sketching, evaluation, plotting, mapping, and topography.
- The content and purpose of geodetic plans, rules for geodetic plans, mapping, altitude presentation of the terrain on the geodetic plans, accuracy of plans, surface calculation, digitalization of geodetic plans, vectorization of geodetic plans, surveying certificate.
- Spatial analysis and spatial data analysis,
- Tools for spatial analysis, the distances, the performance of network analysis, raster data layers and tools for their editing, techniques for surface interpolation, maps algebra, cartographic modeling, the use of scenarios, areas of influence, masking of raster images
- The transformation and translation of vector and raster data
- Logic, Boolean, relational and combinatorial operators
- The global, local, central, zonal and regional functions
- Editing and adjusting of raster image
- Making of faces and their analysis (shading, contours, slopes, orientation of the terrain, the area of visibility)
- The analysis of distances (Euclidean, surface distance, cost surface at the speed resistance, the conversion speed in time, making masks, the line of least resistance)
- Cartographic modeling and network analysis (calculation of the optimal/shortest/fastest route), network model, service areas
