Photogrammetric Mapping

Course Outline

This online course provides procedural guidance, technical specifications, and quality control (QC) criteria for performing aerial photogrammetric mapping activities. The course materials are based on the engineering manual EM 1110-1-1000: Photogrammetric Mapping developed by the US Army Topographic Engineering Center (USATEC), US Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station. This engineering manual is an excellent source of technical information regarding photogrammetric mapping. This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.

Learning Objective

At the conclusion of this course, the student will:
