Measurement is one of the major components of environmental monitoring, whether for water quality, atmospheric conditions. It forms the basis on which hazard management strategies or policies related to the protection and management of the natural environment can be implemented. The objective of this teaching unit is to provide with students the physical and organizational principles for collecting information to describe the natural environment.
This module will introduce the first steps of geo-referenced data project management with the application of sensors and their connection to a communication network. The sampling, data validation and representation of information issues will also be considered.
The course will combine lectures-seminars, tutorials, interviews and on-site visits and project-based learning.
The goal for the students is to be able to perform an effective environmental data collection in order to carry out an agri-environmental project. To achieve this goal, the following program will be done:
|Disciplinary Content||Nb of hours|
|Sensor and Metrology||2|
|Prototyping with Arduino platform||15|
|Networks and IoT||3|
|Data Format, Semantic Networks, Ontologies and Metadata||5|
|Statistic and Sampling||6|
|In field data acquisition and Data processing||15|
|Geomatics and Geographic Information System (GIS) basics, Global navigation satellite system (GNSS)||2|
