GEOENGINE Integrated Fieldwork
July 15 – 26, 2013
Report kindly provided by: Mr. Prapas Wanthong (GEOENGINE generation 2012)

It is like a tradition that GEOENGINE students need to learn in the field so called “Integrated Fieldwork”. As we know, GEOENGINE course teaches us how to become a chief in the field of Geoinformatics. We studied hard throughout the semesters since we have studied all the theories and principles we need to bring the knowledge learned into practice. It was not only us, but also German Bachelor students who have to work with us. This was the great opportunity for us to learn to work together, learn to work as a team, share experiences and comment on the work as well as cultural exchanges between nations. This is the best time in GEOENGINE course.

This year we were divided into eight groups to work in different kind of data acquisitions and then we combined the results all together that’s why we call it “Integrated Fieldwork”. There were something that we might not clearly understand in the class but when we were practiced in the field we could understand easily (Learning by doing). we have lived under the same roof for almost two weeks we have learned to live together sharing and helping each other. These are the important things in life.

Two weeks of the fieldwork we get to know each other more and more and our relationship get closer and stronger not among only GEOENGINE students but also the German students as well. This is the important part of training in the field apart from the knowledge that we were gained from the fieldwork.

Finally, thanks to the professors, the supervisors, the students and everyone who made this event successful.

Now, let’s see what we have done in our fieldwork.

You can see how enjoy we were in the fieldwork. We jumped happily but the one who sat was paranoid. I don’t know why. This is a part of the area we worked. In this area we could feel the summer breeze. It is so wonderful to work under sunshine with great landscape like this. We climbed to the top of a tower to installed pillar GPS receiver it is not so easy to install the instrument but there is nothing that GEOENGINE students can not do.

International cooperation in Trigonometry leveling. We could see the whole city from here. We were not only worked on the day but in the night also although someone felt asleep but we needed to finish the data processing to gave the results to the group who will work on the next day. From the photo this is the proof that BOSS must work hard. An army marches on its stomach

After worked hard at the end of the week we had barbeque party. All you can eat! They were waiting for something….Guess what it is?? At the end of the day we had to summarized all the things we had done in the field as well as suggestions and comments for the next group who will work on the next day. And at the final day of the fieldwork we had a presentation of the results which made by each groups.

This is the instrument that have to be touched by every GEOENGINE students. We learnt how to work together. Whose turn is it?

This is very interesting part of the fieldwork so called “Airborne Photogrammetry”. Camera was attached to an Octocopter to take aerial photos. It was the first time for us to see thing like this. It was so amazing! Dr.Cramer was giving some valuable advice in the fieldwork. The environment in our office. We were discussing about the results we got.

We are friends forever. Our accommodation was so nice and peaceful. We slept together in this room and someone took a nap in this room also (kidding). The biggest GPS receiver we’ve ever seen.

Lady’s work , oops! There was a gentleman also. In differential leveling we had to work carefully to avoid the big error in surveying. In the last night before we went home. The good time to memorize. We are friends forever.
 

Excursion Tour to Leica Geosystems in Heerbrugg/Switzerland
February 8, 2013

Report kindly provided by: Mr. Abdul Rehman Abdullah (7th generation GEOENGINE)

As a tradition of the Universität Stuttgart, excursion tours are usually organized to provide the students the opportunity to closely examine the things which they have studied so far in reality. For this reason the 7th generation of GEOENGINE students together with students from the German Bachelor program visited Leica Geosystems in Heerbrugg/Switzerland. It was the 4th time the students visited this facility and this excursion is usually organized at the end of every winter term in a year. It was a snowy winter and a wonderful tour for most of the new students who visited the Switzerland first time in their life which is also called the playground of Europe.

First of all the students accompanied with Prof. Fritsch enjoys the warm welcome from the Leica Geosystems staff with Swiss breakfast. Then the main presentation session begins with an overview of the Leica product portfolio with a special focus on the future visions of this company as part of the Hexagon group. After that students enjoys the Swiss food with drinks in the lunch. Then students had the chance to visit the major production areas into two groups in the factory. The highlight was the assembly and calibration of the terrestrial laser scanners, the so-called High-definition Surveying systems of the Leica and the digital airborne sensors.

After this informative tour there was the last presentation session on Photogrammetry And Geospatial Solutions. Last but definitely not the least students really appreciate the hospitality of the Leica Geosystems staff who even cares for their lunch-packages when leaving Heerbrugg. While sitting in the bus and coming back to Stuttgart the weather was great, particularly the view of Lake Constance. In a nutshell, it was the unforgettable and a very informative excursion tour.

Excursion to German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Oberpfaffenhofen
January 30, 2013

Report kindly provided by: Mr. Abdul Rehman Abdullah (7th generation GEOENGINE)

In order to provide the corporate sector with well-trained human resource and qualified Engineers, excursion tours (in other words Industrial Trips) are usually organized for students to forget the heavy Term work and daily routine for some time and enjoy in the full sense of humor. To refresh the minds of GEOENGINE 7th generation, together with the students from the German Bachelor program visited the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt) abbreviated as DLR, facilities in Oberpfaffenhofen, nearby Munich. It was the second time the students visited this facility as the pioneer of this idea was also from the GEOENGINE.

This excursion gave the students opportunity to learn about the practical things related to their study Program. During the visit, the students get the first Welcome and Introduction to the Earth Observation Center by Prof. Günter Strunz. Later on, there were two more presentation sessions from Prof. Peter Reinartz on current work in Photogrammetry, 3D and Airborne Real Time Monitoring, and from Dr. Sandro Martinis on Information Extraction from Remote Sensing for Disaster Management Applications.

After that there was an interesting tour to the WorldView-2 Earth Observation Ground station in the building of Earth Observation Center (EOC). In the afternoon students enjoy the taste of German food at the DLR Kantine. We are thankful to Prof. Gerd Hirzinger for giving the students time from his busy schedule and presenting the latest research going on in Robotik und Mechatronik Zentrum (RMC) at DLR. He also took the students to RMC laboratory and grand workshop where state of the art research was going on and it was the most intrusting part in the whole excursion for the students.

Furthermore, this trip really helped the students to up-to-date their knowledge and to make Satellite Geodesy & Geoinformatics understandable. Besides this excursion also inspired the students who are interested to do their Masters Thesis or Internship in DLR and provide them the opportunity to think, in which particular area they are more interested in and what are the latest trends going on in the Advance research. We are positive that our students will show competence, dedication and strong work ethics after this Excursion trip.
