Digital Spatial Analysis
Work with the data of research centres, monitoring projects, satellite and aerial pictures, open positions depending on setting of tasks. Work with a wide variety of technology to gain spatial data, including own measurements and data procurement, e.g. aerial photos, GPS, mapping. Introduction into theory and practice of analysis of satellite pictures, software and hardware of spatial analysis. Learning outcomes: Students are able to create a data and map basis for a given region that is suitable for planning and modeling. They are able to choose methods and tools that are appropriate for the project and have an overview on technical possibilities of databases and geographic information systems. They are able to judge the quality of the used data and be aware of appropriate measures to fill gaps in data.
