Land-surveying fieldwork on the TU Delft campus for 3rd year bachelor course CTB3310 Surveying and mapping
Bachelor of Civil Engineering
In the bachelor of Civil Engineering we teach Dynamics (CTB1210 - 5 EC) in the first year, and Surveying and Mapping (CTB3310 - 4 EC) in the third year, and we participate in the courses Introduction to Civil Engineering (CTB1120 - 5 EC), and Monitoring and stability of dikes and embankments (CTB3425 – 4 EC).
Programming instruction-session of the 2nd year bachelor course AESB2120 Instrumentation and signals with Matlab.
Bachelor of Applied Earth Sciences
In the bachelor of Applied Earth Sciences we teach Mechanics 1 and 2 in the first year (AESB1320 and AESB1420 – both 5 EC), we participate in Introduction to Geophysics and Remote Sensing (AESB1440 – 5 EC), and we teach Instrumentation and signals with Matlab (AESB2120 – 5 EC) and Geostatistics and Remote Sensing (AESB2440 – 5 EC), both in the second year. Also we participate in the 2nd year field work in Vesc (AESB2430 and AESB2431).
The second year BSc-course AESB2440 Geostatistics and Remote Sensing is connected to the Geological Fieldwork in the South-Eastern part of France. View from the top of the mountain over the La Motte-Chalancon area.
Classification map made by second year Applied Earth Sciences students during the fieldwork in France. In the field, students carry out a reconnaissance of the terrain, using also GPS-positioning. The resulting ground truth data are used for the purpose of training classification of remote sensing data, and finally a supervised classification of a Landsat-image of the area is performed.
As an example for the CTB3310 Surveying and Mapping course a concise reader on GPS positioning has been developed.
