Objectives The course provides the theoretical foundations of digital cartography, photogrammetry, GIS and remote sensing, linked to the development of applications through the use of dedicated software, providing the knowledge and basic skills for the management of geo-referenced territorial data, with particular attention to systems data acquisition from satellite and aerial platforms and their use in GIS.
Programme - Use of GIS
Basical definitions of cartography (traditional, thematic, numerical, automatic). Derived maps. Reference surfaces (geoid, ellipsoid). Definition of datum. Projection methods. UTM, Gauss-Boaga and Cassini-Soldner systems. History and diffusion of the GIS system, basical definition, application fields. Overview of different GIS software. Raster data (definitions, GRID). Vector data (CAD, SHP, TIN). Methods for the acquisition of data. Creating a new project. Creating new shapefiles, dBase formats and mdb, open maps within the project, tools and options vector editing (Tools design, Snapping) Design of the structure of the database. Creating fields, types of data, thematic maps, Car stickers, external links, data extraction (save, graphs, statistics). Spatial queries. Calibration and georeferentiation. Conversion of projection systems in raster and vector data. Buffering, overlay (intersect, union), proximity queries.

- Photogrammetry - Photointerpretation – Computer Vision
Definitions of photogrammetry and photo interpretation. Basic notions about the methods and the algorithms for photogrammetric survey (land-air). Analytical photogrammetry, basic notions about the digital photogrammetry. Internal orientation, external orientation, relative and absolute. Photogrammetric restitution. Aerial triangulation. Production of DEM-DTM. Photo-interpretation techniques and methodologies for spatial analysis. Methods and techniques for Computer Vision.

- Remote Sensing
Definition of Remote Sensing and basic principles. Instruments for remote sensing. Type and characteristics of sensors (land - air - satellite) for Remote Sensing. The main satellites for remote sensing. Exploration Techniques. Preprocessing Techniques. Techniques for acquisition, processing and classification of Remote Sensing images (supervised, unsupervised, heuristics, soft computing, object-based). SAR. SAR-DEM, InSAR and Spot, Landsat.
