Course description:

To adopt the basic concepts of programming and the ability to design simple programs in the programming language Java for solving mathematical, geodetic and geoinformatics problems.

Learning outcomes at the level of the programme to which the course contributes
  • Use information technology in solving geodetic and geoinformation tasks.
  • Recognise problems and tasks in the application of geodetic and geoinformation principles and methods, and select proper procedures for their solution.
  • 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.

Learning outcomes expected at the level of the course
  • Distinguish and apply different types of data storage in a computer.
  • Describe and apply the procedures of program design.
  • Analyze the given simple mathematical, geodetic and geoinformatics problem and develop an algorithm by using a pseudocode and a flowchart for its solution.
  • Use a programming language for the implementation of the algorithm expressed by using pseudocode and flowchart.
  • Distinguish simple and complex data types in a programming language.
  • Design an application that uses complex data types.
