ENV-445 / 5 credits

Teacher(s): Merminod Bertrand, Gervaix François

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

Keywords

Natural hazard, terrain movement, stability of constructions

Learning Prerequisites

Recommended courses

Statistics, Photo interpretation, Quantitative methods, Geodetic Engineering, Satellite positioning

Important concepts to start the course

Matlab programming, 3D data, least squares

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

  • Describe various methods for spatial measurement of the environment
  • Detect terrain movements within a project
  • Design a monitoring scheme for natural hazards
  • Design a monitoring scheme for natural hazards and construction sites

Transversal skills

  • Summarize an article or a technical report.
  • Make an oral presentation.
  • Use both general and domain specific IT resources and tools
  • Set objectives and design an action plan to reach those objectives.

Teaching methods

Lectures ex cathedra and exercises, partly in computer room.

Expected student activities

  • Regular attendance at lectures
  • Active participation in small groups for exercices

Assessment methods

50% continuous control during the semester (exercises and projects)
50% oral exam (20 min) during the exam session

Supervision

Office hours No
Assistants No
Forum No
