Students of the Faculty of Civil Engineering, Transportation and Architecture of the University of Maribor Participate in the Labyrinth of Maribor Project

This year, the Faculty of Civil Engineering, Transportation and Architecture of the University of Maribor has joined the Labyrinth of Maribor project. As part of the optional course Geodesy – Geographic and Information Systems, students developed creative ideas for the implementation of this project during practical classes under the guidance of Dr Rok Kamnik and Dr Mark Jauševec.

Initially, the territory of the future labyrinth was recorded by the drone operated by the senior teacher Matjaž Nekrep Perc. The main coordinates of the labyrinth points were determined through the national coordinate system. The third year students of the Architecture study programme drew up its graphical plan. At the same time, they should, first of all, take into account the total size of the labyrinth – from 3 to 4 hectares, and the width of the tracks – about 2 m.

To transfer the labyrinth to the field conditions, the students calculated the division elements of the labyrinth line brakes (coordinates of points). Then they painted these points on separate lines using the QGis software. A total of 548 points were divided into 36 different lines. The length of all lines was 3,339.61 m. In their work, students used the Topcon Hyper V RTK GNSS equipment and a measurement method based on a basic rover with an accuracy of up to ± 1 cm.
