Understand the basic concepts of GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite Systems).
Learn how to autonomously operate a GNSS receiver, from its programming for the acquisition of data in the field to the obtainment of coordinates, including processing the observations in the lab.
Identify sources of data and information available for the support to field surveys and subsquent data processing .
The practical component is target more for the use of GPS due to the availability of equipment.
To be able to autonomously use GPS for georreferencing points in topographic surveys.
Identify the more adequate observation methodology and processing mode in different types of applications
- Elementary knowledge of Reference Systems
Introduction the global positioning techniques: evolution and basic concepts.
Global Positioning Satellite Systems. Actual GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite Systems) and main characteristics: components; orbits; signals.
The GPS system: description, principles and type of observables.
Error sources that can affect GPS observations.
GPS positions determination.
Processing of teh observations. Measurements combination to minimize the errors.
Methodologies for using the system: absolute, relative and DGPS positioning.
Practical aspects of acquiring georeferenced information with GPS: planning field surveys and procedures to adopt in the field surveys.
Use of permanent reference networks.
The concept of Virtual Reference Statio.
Applications of GNSS.
Lectures of theoretical exposition. Execution of practical works involving field surveys and posterior position determination by processing the GPS measurements using commercial software.
Assessment: distributed, with final exam and presentations and reports of practical work (60%, 40%).

In the theoretical-practical classes the students cannot exced the maximum of absences establish
Final examination (E) and Presentations and Report of the practical work (TP)
FINAL = 0.6*E + 0.4*TP where:
E: Writen Examination, TP: Assessment of the Presentations and Report
Minimum: 50% (7/14) in the writen examination and 50% (3/6) in the Presentations and Report
NOTE: Final marks above 15 are only be given after a complementary oral examination.
