Pre-requisite: GIS1402 and GIS3406 or Students must be enrolled in one of the following Programs: GCST or GDST or MSPT
This course is a problem based learning course. It will allow students to apply geographic information systems (GIS) and remote sensing methods and techniques that they have acquired to open ended problems. Emphasis will be placed on how spatial science and technologies are being applied in niche areas to acquire, manage, analyse and generate spatial information for planning and management. The problems in this course may come from the following application areas: natural resource management, environment and ecology, urban and regional planning, socio-economic aspects and business, agriculture, health, engineering, and climate.
