DPW PHOTOMOD basic training courses

We offer three levels of training in use of the PHOTOMOD system:
Introductory one day training at the Racurs office in Moscow (English);
Basic training courses. General principles and main stages of the photogrammetric production line;
Advanced training courses in some specific applications such as topographic mapping, cadastral mapping, architecture and construction, etc.
Basic and Advanced training courses are usually 1 week long.
