CEG3706 : Photogrammetry and Laser Scanning II
- Offered for Year: 2017/18
- Module Leader(s): Professor Jon Mills
- Other Staff: Dr Henny Mills
- Owning School: Engineering
- Teaching Location: Newcastle City Campus
|Semester 2 Credit Value:||10|
To develop the principles and mathematics of photogrammetry and laser scanning introduced in Stage 2.
The module will start by briefly reviewing material covered in CEG2708. The theoretical basis of photogrammetric measurement will then be studied in lectures and practicals, leading to an appreciation of model and block orientation. Principles of digital image measurement will provide a background on automated techniques in photogrammetry and laser scanning. The course will conclude with an examination of ongoing research in the photogrammetry and laser scanning sciences.

Teaching Rationale And Relationship
Students will gain an appreciation of the scientific principles of photogrammetry and laser scanning through the lecture programme and develop skills in data measurement and analysis through the practical sessions. Tutorials will help reinforce knowledge gained in lectures and practicals through researching and presenting specific topics.
The format of resits will be determined by the Board of Examiners
