Aims

To develop the principles and mathematics of photogrammetry and laser scanning introduced in Stage 2.

Outline Of Syllabus

The module will start by briefly reviewing material covered in CEG2708. The theoretical basis of photogrammetric computer vision will then be studied in lectures and practical's. Principles of digital image measurement will provide a background on automated techniques in photogrammetry and laser scanning. The course will conclude with a review of ongoing research and development in the photogrammetry and laser scanning sciences.

Teaching Methods

Please note that module leaders are reviewing the module teaching and assessment methods for Semester 2 modules, in light of the Covid-19 restrictions. There may also be a few further changes to Semester 1 modules. Final information will be available by the end of August 2020 in for Semester 1 modules and the end of October 2020 for Semester 2 modules.

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 practical sessions.

Alternative will be offered to students who are unable to be present in person.

Students should consult their individual timetable for up-to-date delivery information.
