Applied Aerial Photographic Techniques for Landscape analysis

Through the course you will learn how to handle, process and interpret photogrammetric aerial image data in digital environment.

The course is technical and at the same time practically oriented and deals with applied landscape analysis from an aerial view perspective with a focus on data, methods and skill training. These knowledge and skills are in demand by consulting companies and authorities, mainly municipalities. The course deals with theory for, as well as processing and interpretation of, photogrammetric aerial image data in combination with other spatial data for applied landscape analysis. The course includes the production and use of various photogrammetric and cartographic data to create appropriate workflows and prerequisites for analysis where aerial photographic interpretation in 3D is included. The course provides training in the handling of digital photogrammetric 3D systems in connection with GIS.

The course is part of Master's Programme in Landscape Ecology but can also be read as a separate course.

Planned teaching (methods) for the course, linked to Covid-19 and the Swedish Public Health Agency's recommendations, will be presented at the Department's website on February 28.
