ERT 252/3 GEOMATICS ENGINEERING
This course covers surveying, remote sensing, and geographical information systems (GIS) with emphases on basic surveying, fundamentals of remote sensing and its applications, and principles and applications of GIS in agricultural field. The students are exposed to field works to develop skill in using surveying equipments. The main topics discussed are traversing, tachometry, mapping, calculation of areas and volumes, GIS, GPS, and remote sensing.
Ability to apply the knowledge of geomatics engineering principles based on various types of geomatics surveying.
Ability to conduct surveying task and analyze data from various types of geomatics surveying.
Ability to analyze the component of precision farming and interpretation of data.
Ability to plan and organize geomatics activities for geospatial data collection (GPS), mapping (GIS) and presentation of the outcome.
