Aims, contents and method of the course

The aim of the course is that students know approaches, methods and tools for application development and are able to use them in a targeted manner - especially map applications and other applications in the context of geodata.
Approaches, methods and tools are generally related to software engineering, usability engineering and / or requirements engineering, but they are also significant in the context of the development of cartographic applications and other applications in the context of geodata
The course covers various topics, including requirements elicitation and specification, application design, and testing, as well as the software life cycle, application development models and approaches.
In addition to teaching theory (lecture), the course includes practical elements and opportunities for discussion.
