This unit is offered in a blended on-campus mode. The unit delivery comprises one 2-hour online video conferencing session per week. This session is shown in the Unit timetable. Students may join this session from personal computers on-campus or from their work or home. The practical work for this unit can be completed off-campus, but students are encouraged to use on-campus PC laboratory facilities that have the required high-performance computing and required software installed.
Aerial photography has recently become a technology that is widely available. The advent of drones and modern photogrammetric software has revolutionised the way in which we can collect information about the earth’s surface. Photogrammetry is the science of measurement from photographs. This unit will provide you with an understanding of the mathematical principles of photogrammetry and how these principals are used by current software to enable the creation of products such as orthophotos and topographic maps. You will get the opportunity to work with drones and drone data first hand, learn about what drones can and cannot do. Specifically, you will learn skills such as;
* image processing functions.
* camera selection for a range of tasks
* developing appropriate and efficient flight plans.
KGG330 is a core unit in the BSurvSpSc, an advanced unit in the GIS and Remote Sensing Major and is also available to students from other courses who have an interest in aerial photography, in particular using drones.
