Geomonitoring

ENV-445

Lecturer(s) :

Gervaix François
Merminod Bertrand

Language:

English

Summary

The students learn several techniques for spatial mesurements, such as geodesy, aerial photogrammetry and laser scanning. They will be able to collaborate with geologists and civil engineers to master natural risks (landslides, avalanches) and to maintain infrastructures.

Content

Surveying techniques
- geodetic networks
- analogical and numerical aerial imagery
- photogrammetry
- terrestrial and airborne laserscanning
- GNSS phase measurement
- interferometry / InSAR
Coordinate systems and frames
- internal and external orientation
- classical aerotriangulation = indirect georeferencing
- with GPS, GPS+IMU = direct georeferencing
- orthophoto without aerotriangulation
Data quality
- geometrical and qualitative image analysis
- quality indicators for the positions
Specific applications
- mapping with a drone, Pix4D software package
- data for agriculture and forestry
- constructions: roads, bridges, dams
- combined monitoring methods

Keywords

Natural hazard, terrain movement, stability of constructions

Learning Prerequisites
