Aims, contents and method of the course

In the project seminar students will work on practical cartographic projects (conception, design, production). Students will learn how to use geodata, e.g. how to analyze, and process the data. The final result is to represent data and visualize it on the cartographic product. The software that will be used could be open source or any of available GIS in the GI-Lab.
The projects will be done by the students independently and cover different cartographic products. The final product is presented orally and through a project report. This includes the idea, the methodology of creation, the difficulties of the work process, as well as purpose and use of the final product.
