Since there is a significant scarcity of courses on Geodesy, this one was assembled with the intent to make the material as accessible as possible to those workers who need to come up to speed fast.  A major effort was made to prepare material that balances methods and proper technical terms. The emphasis is to cover critical knowledge that was obtained (1) academically and (2) practically over forty years of consulting work.

This material is packaged into fifteen (15) sessions that can be given as remote sessions, or purchased as pre-recorded sessions.  Each session is about one hour long.

To learn more about each session, please read coursedescription 2020-12-14 .

For the pay-per-view sessions, each is available for a fee of $9 for a one-week rental.  To access this course, click here.
