Course objectives
Students are informed about the history of development, basic principles and practical use of geographical information systems (GIS). Subject is focused on the analysis of the whole geospatial data cycle starting with the data acquisition, through analysis, presentation, towards the data maintenance. In this class students will also learn the basics of the software tool, (ArcGIS)and process a set of practical exercises with different types of spatial data.
Learning outcomes
Graduates of this lecture will be able to: - list basic principles of geoinformation technologies use, historical context, and classification; understand geodata acquisition principles and interpret basic geodata models; apply the skills on selected examples and perform a GIS analysis in digital environment; present practical results and evaluate them.
