38/42:477/677 Seminar Adv Geomatics
Instructor: Dr. Dion J. Wiseman
Office: Brodie Room 4-07
Office Hours: M-Th, 12-1 pm or by appointment
This course is designed to familiarize students with advanced topics in the theory and applications of geomatics technologies, specifically geographic information systems, remote sensing, unmanned air vehicles (UAVs), and global navigation survey systems. Emphasis will be placed on advanced techniques for data collection and the integration of geomatics technologies.
The applied component of the course will include a series of practical assignments designed to introduce advanced topics for designing geospatial research projects, collecting geographic data, and for building, managing, and/or analyzing geospatial databases. Assignments will involve field planning and preparation, in-field data collection, and post-processing and analysis of resulting geospatial data. In addition to scheduled practical assignments, students will also select and complete a package of ESRI ArcPro courses in an area of particular interest to them.

Tentative Course Outline
Quiz 1 (Date TBD)
Quiz 2 (Date TBD)
Students will be required to complete five compulsory practical assignments and either a series of self-directed practicals or a project.
Note: The above are outdoor activities and are weather dependent. Last minute scheduling changes are to be expected.
Self-directed Practicals (SDP)*
* If you have already completed coursework or gained practical experience in the above, or are interested in other aspects of geomatics, you may select an equivalent of three courses from the following:
In lieu of completing a series of SDP students may elect to complete a project selected in consultation with the instructor.
