Can anyone recommend any training courses in geodesy which would cover the following objectives:

  • Case studies on coordinate issues.
  • Overview of geodetic datums, coordinate reference systems and transformations.
  • Use of Global navigation satellite systems ie. GPS.
  • Methods in projection methods and methods in measuring the Earths surface.
  • Vertical datums, geoidal models, vertical CRS and their transformations.
  • Orthorectification, georeferencing and other data referencing methods.
  • A little clarification would help here, Rob. The page you point to is a disambiguation page, meaning that the term "geodetics" is not uniquely defined. Presumably you mean "geodesy," but that has little to do with "vector and raster data" except incidentally (insofar as geodetic data might eventually be represented in such forms). So what are you really looking for? – whuber Mar 10 '13 at 14:55

    I have added detail to the question. – Rob Mar 10 '13 at 16:12
  • Are you looking for online courses or an attendance course? – Mapperz Mar 11 '13 at 13:37
  • attendance - will travel – Rob Mar 11 '13 at 16:14
  1. Here is a link to several courses (undergraduate and graduate) of GIS, Cartography and Remote Sensing which are offered by the Oregon State University (OSU) in U.S.A.

  2. Another option are the approximately 90 free online courses offered by ESRI to manage their software ArcGis. Some of them include exercises to do. Here is a link that shows how to attend to them.

  3. ArcGIS training related to Public Health from CDC's Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention (it is divided in four sections going from introduction/principles, going through data management and analysis until special topics in the end).
