Understanding the methods and ability in mapping geological-technical units
Understanding the methods and ability in interpreting and using surface and subsurface data in costructing geological-technical cross-sections
Expertise in correctly representing geological-technical data on map and ability in filing them.
The course consists of 7 hours dedicated to the planning of field activities and theory on the techniques in geological-technical mapping. Lectures and extracurricular seminars are also provided on filing geological information by GIS software.
The course also provides 36 hours of field activities in the surroundings of an urban area with the objective to reconstruct the geological model by acquisition of surface data to combine with subsurface information by bore-hole logs.
The course completes with 24 hours dedicated to the use of QGis for the computerization of data and map restitution
