Hello Teaching Geodesy Interest Group

I just wanted to let you know that a new module to support field geodesy learning has been published by GETSI (GEodesy Tools for Societal Issues).

High Precision Positioning with Static and Kinematic GPS/GNSS
https://serc.carleton.edu/getsi/teaching_materials/high-precision/index.html <https://serc.carleton.edu/getsi/teaching_materials/high-precision/index.html>

In this module, students will learn the fundamentals of global navigation satellite systems (GNSS, a more universal term than GPS) and how to apply these techniques beyond answering, "Where am I?" This module teaches how high-precision positioning enables geoscientists to track changes in the surface of the earth that would otherwise be imperceptible. Through brief classroom lectures, demonstrations, and field exercises, students learn both kinematic and static positioning techniques. This module is field-focused, minimizing lectures and computer work and maximizing student time spent designing and implementing surveys as well as analyzing the new data.
