Geodesy Overview

Audience

Anyone who wants a better understanding of geodetic parameters.

Content

To begin this course, the ellipsoid shape of the earth is examined. Explanations of datum, international reference system and datum shifts are covered next. Participants then study projection and plane coordinates. A review of ellipsoid height, mean sea level (MSL) and geoid completes this course.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand and use geodetic information
  • Know about the different types of projections
  • Know the impact of geodesy on a project as a whole
