About the course
This course introduces state-of-the-art geological mapping and modelling methods that are currently used by for instance the mining and building industry. These methods include data acquisition with UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, e.g. drones), digital outcrop construction, construction of 3D geological maps, and data analysis and modelling. The course will give the opportunity to explore the possibilities of these methods by working on example projects where new data will be collected and combined with existing data. The course mainly uses examples from the mining industry.
