The Fieldwork Training Unit, in close collaboration with the ENSG’s various departments, is responsible for organizing fieldwork internships during the summer at IGN’s training center at Forcalquier (Alpes-de-Haute-Provence) and at Roussillon (Vaucluse) in southern France.
This practical on-the-spot training is an indispensable complement to the theoretical classwork offered at the school in Marne-la-Vallée just east of Paris.
Their location in Provence offers students (1st year cartographic designers, 1st and 2nd year surveyors and 1st year engineers) the opportunity of carrying out their various fieldwork assignments or projects in situ under excellent conditions.
For example, fieldwork projects have been in :
Terrestrial and Spatial Positioning ;
Aerial and Spatial Imagery.
