The course introduces students to the use of Geographic Information Systems and Remote Sensing for the rational and effective management of real spatial/environmental problems. Indicative areas are:
- environmental design,
- spatial and regional planning,
- the location of economic units and units of social benefit,
- but also any sector with a geographical component.
Upon completion of the course the student will have understood:
- the process of analysis of geoinformation applications/systems,
- the ways of obtaining / managing / analyzing geospatial information, and
- the way of applying the science of Geoinformatics in various scientific objects.
He will also have acquired knowledge:
- on geospatial databases,
- in analyzing the location selection problems and relocation of facilities in spatial networks and continuous space to optimize demand/coverage,
- in satellite data and A/F processing methodologies, such as satellite image and A/F classifications with image object tracking algorithms
in the production of orthophoto maps and Digital Surface Model (DSM).
