Summer 2017 course offered jointly by
American University of Armenia (AUA) and the National University of Architecture and Construction of Armenia (NUACA)
URBAN ENVIRONMENTAL MAPPING: FIELD APPLICATION OF SENSING AND VISUALIZATION TOOLS
This course focuses on spatio-temporal mapping of urban environments, with emphasis on field application of sensors and visualization technologies. Participants will be introduced to the theoretical and technical framework of urban environmental data acquisition and visualization using readily available sensing kits and the state-of-the-art mapping platforms. This course promotes active student participation and intensive fieldwork. Students will become familiar and apply the following mapping, visualization, and physical computing platforms: ArcGIS or QGIS (open-source) for mapping, Rhino3D and its plug-in Grasshopper for data processing and visualization, and Arduino software/hardware for physical computing and environmental data acquisition. This course will culminate in composition and presentation of a 5-minute videos that will document the students’ workflows and findings.
Admission: Approval of AUA Acopian Center for the Environment needed. Submit your CV and a letter of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org
