  • Owning School: Engineering
  • Teaching Location: Newcastle City Campus
Semesters
Semester 1 Credit Value: 10
ECTS Credits: 5.0

Aims

To further the mathematical skills essential for an understanding of observation processing and analysis. To provide students with an in-depth understanding of the reasons for inaccuracy in survey measurements and how, by processes of pre-analysis estimation and post-analysis, to achieve and guarantee survey results adequate for their purpose. Knowledge of the basic concepts will be related to the computation of 2D and 3D survey control schemes but the universality of methods for the handling of measurement data is stressed with several case studies

Outline Of Syllabus

Maths for Observation Processing (linearisation and Taylor’s series, partial differentiation, matrix algebra); survey errors and their propagation; least squares using observation equations; network analysis; covariance analysis & pre- and post- network analysis.
