Geographical information systems, space coordinates, analysis. Localization systems, navigation systems, global positioning system.
Introduction to GIS, model of real world, data structure for spatial data, methods if data input, digitalisation, geographics coordination systems, map projection, vector data form, raster data form, spatial relationships and algorithms, general GIS tasks, transportation domain, GIS applications. Main principles of localization, satellite localization, performance parameters, processing of positioning data, digital carthographic data for navigation, navigation systems, dynamical navigation systems, aplications of navigation systems.
The subject is specialized in problems of work with geographical information systems applications in particular consideration of transportation and telecommunication problems. It acquaints students with tools for geographical data management and analysis and explains tasks solved in transportation, e.g., road problems. Teach students the principles of localization and navigation systems and their applications.
