Course description:

The goal of course Computational geometry is the renewal and replenishment secondary education of geometry, using the dynamic geometry (Geometer's Sketchpad 5.03HR) as a tool for drawing / design, with particular emphasis on applications in geodesy and geoinformatics.

Learning outcomes at the level of the programme to which the course contributes
  • To know theoretical principals, procedures of computer processing and visualisation of surveying data.
  • To understand the mathematical methods and physical laws applied in geodesy and geoinformatics.
  • To apply the knowledge in mathematics and physics for the purpose of recognizing, formulating and solving problems in the field of geodesy and geoinformatics,
  • To use information technology in solving geodetic and geoinformation tasks.
  • To plan the continuation of academic education in the field of geodesy and geoinformatics, or related disciplines, and to develop the lifelong learning attitude.

Learning outcomes expected at the level of the course
  • Troubleshoot and draw constructive task of applying the transformation plane / space using dynamic geometry Sketchpad 5:03CRO
  • To construct geometric figures by animation using the dynamic geometry sketchpad 5:03
  • To solve constructive tasks by iteration method
  • The basics of mathematical (geometric) model and apply them
  • Ability to formulate problems of geodesy on geometric (mathematical) language as well as their analysis and resolution
  • Demonstrate skills geometric reasoning
