Syllabus:

This course is suitable for those with or without previous Geographical Information Systems (GIS) experience. The course is based on spatial (geographic) data, and how it can be utilised within a GIS environment. This includes the input, storage, and management of spatial data; analysing and modelling spatial data; and the various outputs (maps and charts) from a GIS. It illustrates the use of that data to solve real-world problems in a wide variety of applications. The coursework has a strong practical focus, and students will gain experience in field data collection, and the construction, manipulation, and interpretation of data in a GIS environment. Lectures provide the theoretical foundation of the principles behind the fundamental concepts of spatial analysis and mapping within a GIS. This includes the vector and raster data models; projections and coordinate systems; spatial analysis tools and methods; map design and spatial data visualisation techniques; where and how to source spatial data; data quality issues; and how GIS has been used in different industries and fields of research. Practical workshop sessions build on the content covered in lectures, guiding students in the development of increasingly sophisticated spatial analysis capabilities and the creation of high-quality maps, using commercial GIS software. Students will learn how to interpret and present the results of spatial data analysis through high-quality technical reports. Students with existing skills in GIS analysis are encouraged to develop and apply data analysis techniques to propose, construct and carry out a major research project in an area of their own interest.
