Intended learning outcomes
This course intends to provide the basics in theory, models and applications of analytic and digital photogrammetry, as well as to give students an owerview of remote sensing concepts, the ways in which remote sensing systems are used to acquire data, how these data may be analyzed digitally, and how the information is used in various applications.
At the end of the course, students should have a good knowledge on how to acquire different types of remote sensing imagery and the basic algorithms to process and analyze remotely sensed images. Students should to be able to apply and develop photogrammetry for production of spatial data and for non-topographic applications, to plan aerial photogrammetric spatial data production and to analyze the resulting quality. Students should also be capable of undertaking basic digital image analysis.

Examination and completion
If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.
- LAB2 - Laboratory Work, 4.0 credits, grading scale: P, F
- PRO2 - Project, 1.5 credits, grading scale: P, F
- TEN2 - Examination, 3.5 credits, grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.
The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.
