Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Based on examples participants will learn how the use the often complex tools of geographic information systems by using a desktop GIS (ArcView). Focus is laid on how to prepare spatial data for the use in a GIS (e.g. create spatial data and combine the geometry and statistical data) and visualize data in a cartographic way.
Alternating lecture and applied work in the GIS laboratory. Gradually a GIS project is built with the associated data sets and finally visualized cartographically

Assessment and permitted materials

From the second unit there is at the beginning of each unit a short test.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

After completion of the course participants should be able to:
- explain about a projection and assign one to a dataset professionally
- spatially reference an image
- create a spatial database and fill it with data
- use mobile tools for data collection
- carry out on their own and in the right way the necessary steps of data collection for a GIS project
- visualize the results cartogaphically.
