Geographic Analysis and Visualization in GIS

Through geographical analyzes, we understand our surroundings and can give ourselves opportunities to make decisions

The course deals with spatial analysis, database design, modeling and visualization in GIS. For a geoscientist or geographer it is important to be able to collect and assess data from maps, establish geographic databases, and use digital data from various sources. It is just as important to be able to assess the content of survey data for analysis, compilation and presentation using geographic IT.

In this course you will collaborate to analyse and present digital geodata within a range of current research issues. The course is intended to give the skills needed to conduct a GIS based project. The project tasks are picked from needs in research, municipalities, counties and consultancy companies.

Please note: To be able to manage this course you need good computer skills and practical experience in using Remote Sensing and GIS.

The course is part of Master's Programme in Geomatics with Remote Sensing and GIS. The course can also be read as a separate course.
