Course Description & Objectives: 

To introduce students to the concepts of geographical information systems and their applications; functionality and applications of a GIS. GIS is not only, 2D, but also 3D, or 4D (3D + 77 time); Characteristics of spatial data; Models of spatial information;  Spatial  relationships  and  algorithms;  Spatial  analysis  (such  as  route planning, map overlay, buffer zoning, etc.); Database models for spatial data; Errors in spatial data; Sources of raster spatial data and introduction to remote sensing; Sources of vector spatial data; Ethical issues and spatial data; Cartographic communication - the display of spatial data; Coordinate systems and map projections.

Learning Outcomes: 

By the end of the course, the student should be able to:

  • Identify basic concepts and operations of a GIS
  • Identify basic concepts and operations of Remote Sensing
  • Apply and further develop basic practical skills in GIS and Remote Sensing
  • Describe the nature of geographic phenomena and their representation in the context of geo-informatics;
