Course Overview: This course is normally examined by thesis alone and likely research areas include: land and geographic information systems; design and modelling of spatial information systems; environmental modelling and visualisation; spatial analysis; cadastral systems and land administration; high precision measurement; precise surveillance and monitoring surveys; integrated geodesy and geodetic surveys; analytical photogrammetry and digital mapping; close range and videometric photogrammetry; image analysis and remote sensing; heritage recording; hydrographic surveying; and network adjustments and numerical processes. Students will normally enrol in Research subject 451-602.
Objectives: On successful completion of this course, students will have acquired proficiency in:
  • the definition of a research proposal

  • determining an appropriate research methodology;

  • data analysis and evaluation

  • appropriate review and evaluation techniques for literature surveys

  • reporting to an acceptable standard in the form of a thesis embodying the project and its outcomes

  • understanding the role of research in Geomatic Engineering, as evidenced by the production of a thesis and the fundamental principles underlying the selected study

  • the technical characteristics of the selected study and technical requirements in carrying out the proposal

  • sustained original investigation of a defined area of research specialisation
