Cursusdoelen

By the end of the course, the student will have acquired:
An advanced skill level in performing a spatial analysis with a large GIS: being able to input data, perform GIS analyses and present results.
A theoretical background on GIS.
A view on GIS practice within and outside the University.
- A working experience with large and small scale spatial data and being able to apply that in research.
- Presentation of a GIS research : report, oral and poster

Inhoud

In this “hands on” course the emphasis lays on working with GIS together with a theoretical embedding. The Software used is ESRI ArcGIS 10 (both desktop and workstation) together with Erdas Imagine (Orthobase PRO/LPS, Virtual GIS and Stereo Analyst).

The course exists of two major parts:
- The assignment is a traditional workflow existing of the making of a “Potential Erosion Map” of a part of South Limburg, the Netherlands. Part of the data is available (Top10 and contour lines) in digital form. Another part must be digitized (soil map). The analyses are calculating derivatives and combining the data to one or more resulting maps. The maps must be presented through hardcopies in a scientific report.
- DEM extraction of aerial photography. This project must be presented in a poster and oral presentation.
Additional smaller assignments can be given and must be handed in.

Students work in groups of 2 or alone if seats or software licenses allow.
- Learning advanced theory of geospatial data analysis
- Performing a complete GIS-project: datainput -> analisys -> mapmaking/report
- Getting familiar with DEM extraction methods
- Training in oral and written presentation of the individual exercises
- Training in designing and developing a poster on DEM extraction.

Programme
This course is given in period 1, at a maximum of 30 participants. The Lab-sessions (compulsory) are in room 422 of the WC van Unnik-building.
