Course description and aims

This course gives an overview of survey technology that is one of the most basic technologies in design, planning, or construction works. In this course, the historical aspects, basic knowledge such as global coordinates, error theory, data processing methods will be explained. In addition, the recent developments and technologies in the field of survey such as GPS, digital photogrammetry, GIS, or remote sensing will be outlined in class.
This course is aimed at providing fundamental technical knowledge in civil and environmental engineering fields for students.

Student learning outcomes

By the end of this course, students will be able to:
1) Explain the history of the developments of survey technologies.
2) Explain errors in measurements and the propagation of such errors.
3) Explain how to handle data containing errors.
4) Explain recent survey technologies such as GPS and GIS.

Keywords

Out-of-Class Study Time (Preparation and Review)

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.

Textbook(s)

None.

Reference books, course materials, etc.

Materials will be given by the instructor.

Assessment criteria and methods

In this class, students' performance will be evaluated as follows.
Instructor 1 (Seo) : report (20%) and examination (80%)
Instructor 2 (Not assigned): report (15%) and final report (85%).
The final evaluation will be done by averaging the evaluation results of the two instructors.
