Alpine Cartography Field School 2015

The Alpine Field School 2015 had been successfully accomplished by our international students. The nine days of intensive training were part of the module Georelief and Cartography – Morphogenetic and Environmental Understanding. The module combines on-site lectures, day excursions and practical in-situ training.

During the excursions students gained knowledge in understanding topography, orientation within varying landscapes and observed local geo-features within a wider geographical context. Geodata captured with electronic methods during the excursion were a base for creation of field and thematic maps.
