Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This computer-based laboratory exercises is provided for students of the second part of all branches of study in Biology but also provided in Computer Science, Landscape Planing and Geography.
Content: This computer-based laboratory exercise will develop basic and practical skills of handling spatial data in a specific GIS environment (ESRI ArcGIS 10 and QGIS).
Attendance of the associated lecture is compulsory - theory taught there is the basis for the exercises in the computer-lab!
Main topics will ba:
-Data Acquisition and Integration
-Data generation
-spatial reference systems
-Catography
