This course aims at progressing knowledge of spatial analysis tools in GIS. Map Algebra techniques will be applied to solve complex GIS projects. Part one is focussed on solving one complex spatial analysis exercise using commonly used GIS software emphasising how to best present results.
Part 2 focuses on optimising the planning and management of a GIS project. Attention is given to time management and potential sources of uncertainty when planning a GIS project. Through a series of practical exercises students will acquire the necessary skills for designing projects that address the needs of a target client or audience.
|Session||Second Sub Session||Credit Points||15 credits (7.5 ECTS credits)|
Students are assigned the task of utilising available map data and information as well as other disparate sources of information. They are asked to solve a specific problem utilising GIS advanced skills, specifically in spatial analysis. The solution is presented as a report covering the task with a specific focus on method.
This is the total time spent in lectures, tutorials and other class teaching.
100% continuous assessment. Two coursework assessments.
