From Spring 2013 this course will no longer be given. Students active on the course, or on GISA01 will be able to finish it. This course GISA22 is together with GISA21 replacing the courses GISA01, GISA02 and GISA11
This course is the second course in GIS where more advanced GIS techniques and analyses are taught. The course is a balanced mix of theoretical foundation and practical applications. It contains 8 sub models including remote sensing, digitalization and image rectification, map accuracy assessment, interpolation, databases, advanced GIS analysis, topographical modelling and implementation of GIS.
The course includes both a theoretical part and practical exercises for each sub model. The course provide basic as well as more advanced methodologies for data capture (digitalization, remote sensing), data correction and map accuracy assessment, data processing and enhancement (interpolation) as well as handling of spatial databases (database management, SQL, meta data). Advanced analyses include fuzzy set theories and modelling as well as topographical modelling. The course ends with a sub-model concerning the implementation of GIS in an organization (preparations, important steps, and follow up).
NOTE: This is an internet based course. You are not supposed to travel to Lund to attend. The course is part of LUMA-GIS, the master program in GIS, but it is also possible to study this course outside the program. You can read more about the master program, the admission requirements and other rules and regulations on the homepage of LUMA-GIS.
Teaching consists of lectures and practical exercises that you will submit to the teachers. The course ends with a written report concerning the implementation of GIS in an organization.
