2. Objectives and learning outcomes
2.1 Objectives
Students accomplishing the course will have an overview of the R&D activities and trends in the field of laser scanning. They learn the latest technological developments in airborne, mobile, and terrestrial laser scanning. Besides data acquisition techniques and solutions, students study point cloud processing techniques. They have the opportunity to deepen their knowledge in a selected area of laser scanning, survey the relevant literature, and try the methods. This way the course supports PhD students to review state-of-the-art technologies and solutions and select results that can be used in their own research work.
2.2 Learning outcomes
Upon successful completion of this subject, the student:
A. Knowledge
  1. Has an overview of the latest development in the field of airborne, mobile, and terrestrial laser scanning.
  2. Knows the advantages and shortcomings of the particular laser scanning data acquisition methods.
  3. Has an overview of the cutting edge point cloud processing techniques and solutions.
  4. Knows the main engineering application fields laser scanning can support.
B. Skills
  1. Evaluates the performance of the particular laser scanning technology.
  2. Selects appropriate data acquisition technology considering the application requirements.
  3. Selects the effective data processing method for particular tasks.
  4. Is able to assess the potential of data processing techniques.
C. Attitudes
  1. Cooperates with the teacher and fellow students in expanding the knowledge,
  2. Expands his knowledge with the continuous acquisition of knowledge,
  3. Open to the use of information technology tools,
D. Autonomy and Responsibility
  1. Is able to perform own literature survey.
  2. Makes responsible decisions based on consultation.
2.3 Methods
