Course description:

The objectives of this course are:
  • To introduce students into basic map projections used in geodesy, surveying and geoinformatics
  • To explain unavoidable distortions in different map projections
  • To make a foundation that will help in the application and choice of suitable map projections

Learning outcomes at the level of the programme to which the course contributes
  • Demonstrate competences in theoretical principles, procedures of computing and visualising the surveying data.
  • Make plans, maps and related presentations using modern methods and technologies on the basis of measured data and other sources.
  • Determine and interpret the size, properties and relations of objects in space on the basis of measured data, spatial databases, plans and maps.
  • Maintain topographic, cartographic, maritime and navigation, and land information systems, integrate and visualise spatial information.
  • Use information technology in solving geodetic and geoinformation tasks.
  • Exercise appropriate judgements on the basis of performed calculation processing and interpretation of data obtained by means of surveying and its results.
  • Prepare official public documents, reports, graphic and cartographic presentations using the surveying results related to objects in space.
  • Communicate the results obtained by means of geodesy and geoinformation to clients and experts of geodetic and other related professions.
  • Keep pace with and adopt new technological achievements in the field of surveying, geoinformation systems and services based on the position, and the changes in regulations, norms and standards.
  • Take responsibility for continuing academic development in the field of geodesy and geoinformatics, or related disciplines, and for the development of interest in lifelong learning and further professional education.

Learning outcomes expected at the level of the course
  • Define coordinate systems in cartography
  • Describe Earth's sphere and ellipsoid
  • Interpert general theory of map projections including their distortion evaluation and distribution
  • Define map projections classifications
  • Define important map projections
  • Solve problems in the official map projections
  • Choose the appropriate map projection
