Course description:

The driving factor for this curriculum is bringing specifics and methods of survey on and under the water surface closer to students; preparation of students for conducting hydrographic survey projects, with special attention to processing and visualising bathymetric data; introducing students to maritime organisations in Croatia and the world.

Learning outcomes at the level of the programme to which the course contributes
  • Understand the role of geodesy, geoinformatics and spatial data in modern world, demonstrate competences in measuring systems, methods and technologies of measurement and spatial data collection.
  • Handle geodetic instruments and appropriate measuring equipment properly, and perform geodetic measurements.
  • Establish geodetic networks needed in surveying and stakeout in order to provide the required quality of the works performed in certain space.
  • 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.
  • 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.

Learning outcomes expected at the level of the course
  • Definition of terms Hydrography, bathymetry, oceanography and marine geodesy as well as knowing basics of marine law and maritime domain
  • Knowing basics and specifics of marine cartography and classification of naval navigational maps
  • Explain the role of International Hydrographic organisation and Croatian Hydrographic institute as well as IHO specifications
  • Knowing naval positioning methods
  • Describe clasic and contemporary depth measurement methods and errors occurring during depth measurements
  • Defining the execution plan for hydrographic survey
  • Mastering the use of a singlebeam echosounder in combination with a GNSS receiver
  • Applying modern methods and techniques of hydrographic survey for production of simple analogue and digital plans, maps and similar
