Geographic Information Systems II
7.5 ECTS credits
The course is based on problem-solving learning and focuses on the functions and application areas of advanced vector-based GIS. Students carry out supervised independent GIS-projects in groups. New concepts and functions are introduced and processed. The project requires students to seek and use new information to move the project ahead. In computer exercises, for instance, students work on the structure of topological data designs, data editing and data quality.
Progressive specialisation: G1F (has less than 60 credits in first‐cycle course/s as entry requirements)
Education level: Undergraduate level
