The course covers process modelling from a spacial perspective. The overall goal is to give the students theoretical and practical knowledge of the possibilities and problems in using digital GIS and/or remote sensing data to model environmental factors in space and time. Both purely scientific/technical aspects and economic, legal and social aspects may be included.
The course consists of theoretical and practical (computer-based) elements relevant to spacial modelling. Individual projects and group work as well as practise in oral and written presentations are included. The course takes an inter-disciplinary approach to spacial analysis.
Teaching consists of lectures, practicals, field exercises, seminars, group projects and project work. Practicals, field exercises, seminars and group projects and project work, and the course elements associated with these, are compulsory.
