This class will address new methodologies to acquire and analyze topographic data at all scales. Methodologies such as airborne LIDAR and optical image correlation (regular camera and satellite images) will be presented along with examples from earth sciences. One session will be dedicated to point cloud analysis tools. Hand-on experiments on computer will be proposed using open-source softwares such as MicMac (for optical correlation) and CloudCompare (for point cloud analysis).

The number of places is limited. Computers will be available for the practical parts.
