Be prepared for responsibility and the rewards and problems that come with responsibility. It is very important to be comfortable making decisions and living with them. While it is impossible to be right all of the time the majority of decisions you make have to be correct.

Creative?
Creative
Creative people are drawn to careers and activities that enable them to take responsibility for the design, layout or sensory impact of something (visual, auditory etc). They may be drawn towards the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.

DT112 Geomatics (Surveying & Mapping)



Courses related to this video..

 

This programme is where Geography meets mathematics and science! Another name for Geographic Science is Geomatics. Learn how to produce maps and measure all sorts of objects and features on the land.

Geographic Science involves three fields of activity - Spatial Data Provision – measuring the land, Spatial Information Management and Land Management.

Spatial Data Provision involves the collection of data relating to the Earth (spatial data). Instruments such as GPS receivers, terrestrial airborne and spaceborne cameras and scanners, electronic distance and angle measuring instruments (total stations) and much more, are used to collect precise data which is then processed to create digital maps and 3D models of our landscape for development, monitoring and planning. We collect and apply these data on construction sites, on the land, offshore and underground to meet the needs of a range of users.

Spatial Information Management takes the collected data and generates optimised geographical information for a wide range of applications. This involves 3D modelling, computer visualisation, analysis in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and delivery of the results and products to the client.

Land Management deals with the four main national Land Administration systems - Land Value for Taxation, Land Tenure for Ownership of Property, Land Use for Planning, and Land Development for Construction and Conservation.
