This is a two hour class discussing Photogrammetry essentials. The class will review the following:
- Terms and Definitions (i.e. focal length, neat model, mean terrain, c-factor, etc.)
- Flight Planning
- Map and Photo Scale
- Equations Required in Flight Plan and Relief Displacement
- Control Planning
- Project Planning
John Pavlik has over 25 years of experience teaching Photogrammetry, and is one of the best in simplifying complex matters. Mr. Pavlik will discuss the fundamentals and then slowly work into flight planning. After several problems have been solved and discussed, the class will delve into the practical application of aerial project planning. The class is geared towards exam takers at the national and state level, as well as practitioners. Upon completion you will leave with a comfort feeling when the next aerial project or problem presents itself.
After a four-year tour of duty in the U.S. Navy, John attended Fullerton College and California State University at Fullerton continuing on to obtain his teaching credentials at the University of California at Riverside. He became a licensed land surveyor in 1982 while working for the Orange County Surveyor for 38 years in various capacities until 2013 when he retired. His last assignment there was Right of Way Engineering Manager, a position he held starting in 1997. During his career he also taught part time in both the California State University system and Community Colleges since 1983. He is co-author of the CSULB Land Surveying Review Manual and the IIT Engineering Surveying Review Manual. John has presented professional exam preparation courses for the LSIT (FS), LS and PE examinations since 1984, helping well over one thousand people obtain their professional registration. Since retirement John consults on a part time basis and continues to teach when not enjoying his many other interests.
