Course contents

The course gives thorough theoretical and practical knowledge about the most common spatial algorithms in GIS. The theory concentrates mainly on spatial concepts and algorithms (both vector and raster). In the practical part of the course, the student implements some well-known algorithms using a standard programming language. It is highly recommended that you study Geographical databases before this course. BE AWARE: This course requires some programming skills. If you have not programmed before, you are not recommended to attend this course.
