Academic Training Lecture Regular Programme

REMOTE: Geodetic metrology for future accelerators - Introduction to Geodesy (1/5)

by Prof. Sébastien Guillaume (HEIG-VD)





This lecture will introduce some basics in mathematical and physical geodesy. First, the mathematical foundations of the most common coordinate systems (cartesian, ellipsoidal and projective) used in geodesy are presented. Second, the reference systems and frames (celestial, terrestrial and local) used in geodesy, and their relationships, are exposed. Finally, the basic mathematical and physical foundations of physical geodesy are introduced to expose the concepts of geoid and height systems.

Short Bio Sébastien Guillaume 

Sébastien Guillaume graduated as a Geomatics Engineer in 2007 from ETH Zurich. He obtained his PhD thesis in 2015 in Physical geodesy at ETH Zurich and CERN under the supervision of Prof. Alain Geiger (ETH), Prof. Dr. Markus Rothacher (ETH) and Mark Jones (CERN). Since 2019, he is associate professor in Geodesy, GNSS and navigation at HEIG-VD in Yverdon-les-Bains. Since 2015, he is member of the Swiss Geodetic Commission and the Official Swiss Federal Surveyors Commission.
