Participation in the professionalizing module Introduction to Geoinformatics (BA)
Skills to be acquired in this module
With this module, students of the Master course will gain qualifications for the analysis of spatial data and for modelling special landscape ecological tasks. Thus, they gain technical skills which they can use for preparing their Master thesis and also an important qualification for their future professional career.
Module contents
a) Practical work with GIS (E)
The students learn to compile geodatabanks as well as to use complex geographical analysis tools. Moreover, they gain knowledge into mobile application of GIS and practise data management based on map server applications.
b) Analysis and Models (S/E)
The students will gain skills in answering spatial or landscape ecological questions by means of complex GIS analysis (erosion models, route planning) as well as basic skills in spatial data modelling.
c) Scanning analysis (S/E)
Application and integration of data obtained by photogrammetry and aerial survey are practised on the basis of scientific articles and practical cases. The spectrum of the seminar covers work with digital landscape models, three-dimensional surface analysis as well as spectral analysis of aerial and satellite digital images.
