TOPIC

 

GIS-Up with Open Sources Geographic Information Systems (GIS) provide a huge bundle of tools to create, store, manage, display and analyze geo-data. They are an excellent tool to support planning and decision making processes. But appropriate geo-data are not always available, very difficult to obtain or very expensive. In the seminar you will get an introduction to GIS in general, you will learn to practice an open source GIS (QGIS) and you get information how to access freely available data. Beside this practical part – which focuses on hands-on exercises – you compile an essay about a GIS aided projects and share this with your fellow students. 

IMPORTANT: Students use their own computers.
