This page stores links to some teaching material I have made over the years at UH, HUT, UEF and other places.
I realized the potential of the Web in 1996, when I was introduced to it by Mikko Utunen. Having your material
openly in the web is beneficial in many ways. Taxpayers know what their money is used, you see how things
evolve and change over the years - it serves as a portfolio. I find it fantastic to be able to download stuff from the
Web and feel therefore obliged to do my part.
Pedagogic philosophy: I give priority to the contents of teaching, which optimally links with topical research.
Common sense, feedback, transparency of teaching and self-criticism help in avoiding pedagogic disasters.
Set the goals a bit higher than where the final bar is - this maximizes the number of students reaching that bar?
2012 * MARV216 Basic Course in (Python, object-oriented) Programming. Jan-March 2012. moodle.helsinki.fi, login as guest.
LiDAR simulator project (pdf), Survival Kit (pdf), The LiDAR simulator project results (pptx)
* Advanced remote sensing (lectures and labs in one zip). UEF, Feb 2012
* MARV106 forest inventory, UH. Spring 2012 (We aer just delivering data, from here)
* FOR110, (MARV1) Forest mensuration and managements, field course, July 2012. (Just delivering data and old programs,course has changed)
* Skogsbruk runtom Östersjön (UH): A little lecture (pdf) and vocabulary (pdf).
2011 * MMVAR37 Basic course in programming (for foresters). In Python. See MARV216 in 2012.
* MARV3 Forest management planning, field course (an assistant only, last MARV3 of its kind)
* MARV1 Forest mensuration and management, field course.
Started as a University lecturer at UH Jan 1, 2011, and went on 5-year absence of leave Sept 1, 2011.
2010 * MARV1 2010 Forest mensuration and management, field course.
* Skogsbruk runt om Östersjön. (pdf).
* Evo/HAMK: A day of lectures, demos and exercises in sensor fusion for senior forest inventory and management experts and teachers.
Another day of lectures and demos in October, where I was re-using the 2009 NOVA PhD-course material.
* UEF: Advanced remote sensing (homepage). Lectures 4h + remote labs in Photogrammetry.
2009 * MARV1 Growth & Yield plots - Measurement campaign: Photogrammetry + Field Work. 3rd succesfull attempt to use student
labour for collecting research material. We got reasonable feedback. The students measured and mapped some 3000 trees.
A positioned and measured tree costs around 2-4€, depending on the number of measurements taken. .
* UJ: Nova post-gradate course in 3D RS of forests by Packalen et al.: NOVA 3D Course. I wrote a separate version of the KUVAMITT-program
to be a bit more educative. A sample dataset of frame and pushbroom sensor images + LiDAR was made available including 8/16-bit images.
The students could load the 5GB package. Let's see where it leads. Another overkill, but I hope to get a chance to utilise the exercises agn.
* HU: Skugsbruk runt om Östersjön -kurs: PPT redovisning om laserkanning och fotogrammetri i 3D skoglig kartläggning. Quite
interesting trial in doing teaching in Swedish. Feasible but utterly laborious with all the missing vocabulary.
2008 * MARV1 Teaching LiDAR and photogrammetry in the field. Again students mapped and measured nearly 2500 trees for reference
and learned basics of forest mensuration and a little bit about surveying, LIDAR and photogrammetry applied to forestry.
2007 * MARV1 Teaching LiDAR and photogrammetry in the field. Students measured 19 research plots for research. Terrible rainy wx
the whole duration of the course, but a lot of SISU by many saved the course. With Holopainen.
* MARV4 Forest inventory project with Holopainen. A first attempt since long to combine research with teaching.
Professor Poso made the first in 1990s. Here's our peer-reviewed paper in STRS (ISPRS pdf).
2006 * MINV12 Post-graduate course in 3D remote sensing of forests. First PhD-course by me, a bit of an overkill from my part. The good part
with course was that it forced me to learn about LIDAR as I was responsible of those exercises. The course focused too much on STRS in
images, but you teach what you know best....
OLDER: honeybee.helsinki.fi was removed by the UH IT, most links don't work.
is a good way of learning it yourself". Forestry students of the 1980s
could have as much as 25 weeks of field courses
Left picture from 1993 has prof. Lalli Laine field lecturing in Sinivuori nature reserve.
In the late 1980s, most forestry students were male, which resulted in 'gender issues' in teaching staff (Prof. Laasasenaho & team 1994)
