Spatial information is fundamental to decision making in all environmental disciplines. It is widely used in natural sciences areas from agriculture, environmental management to mining industries. The breadth of applications of spatial information is increasing rapidly due to a vastly improved availability of spatial data and the recently accelerated development of geographic information systems and remote sensing tools. The subject introduces theory, history and current methods of spatial information presentation, generation, and analysis. It gives an overview of major Australian and South Australian mapping programs and spatial information in government agencies. Students are introduced to factors that shape the landscape and learn how to interpret land surface features. In field exercises students are introduced to surveying, the use of Global Positioning Systems, field navigation and safety.
