Interdisciplinary Knowledge Transfer within Surveying Higher Education
Guido Heinz, Jörg Klonowski, Hartmut Müller, Germany
At Mainz University of Applied Sciences, Department of Geoinformatics and Surveying, a long experience is available in co-operation projects with partners from the humanities for the purpose of archaeological and cultural heritage documentation and preservation. This paper focuses on a subset of about 40 diploma thesis which were executed within archaeological and cultural heritage documentation projects outside Germany. Besides the location of the project area, another selection criterion was the overall importance of diploma work for the respective project. While conducting such work in close co-operation with students and professionals of other disciplines, surveying students gain valuable knowledge from those other fields. In such projects, students of all participating disciplines have the chance to augment their disciplinary knowledge with knowledge from other disciplines.
