Geographical information experts deal with a wide variety of spatial information issues, such as the digital visual representation of city development plans for the use of citizens and businesses, the possible use of satellite images to monitor changes in forests in developing countries, or combining soil, land use, topography and geomorphology data into a single map illustrating the probability of finding archaeological values in an area.
The programme may be followed on a full-time (2 years) or half-time basis (4 years), offered in the format of a blended learning programme (combination of distance learning and contact hours). Since it is predominantly a distance-learning programme, extensive use will be made of various ICT media. In addition, the programme requires a few periods of intensive classroom attendance. Moreover, modules may be taken separately too.
Students will be introduced to the theoretical, methodological, technological and organisational principles of processing and analysing digital geo-information, the management and research aspects of geo-information, and the innovative application of geo-information in a wide variety of spatial application fields.
We also offer this programme as a full-time course.
