Units courses prerequisite and corequisite

Prerequisite or corequisite units are presented within each program

Learning unit contents

As a first step, the course deepens the theoretical concepts developed as part of the course "Global Navigation Satellite Systems". Then, the theory is put into practice to solve concrete problems: the student learns to process GNSS data from geodetic receivers or smartphones to calculate positions using the main modern positioning techniques: Single Point Positioning (SPP), Precise Point Positioning (PPP) and Real Time Kinematics (RTK).

Learning outcomes of the learning unit

The student will be able to implement the positioning technique best suited to achieving a given goal.
