Spatial professionals and other users in the GIS industry require a sound knowledge of geodatabases, scripting languages for geoprocessing, and visualisation of spatial data. Having some competence in these key areas has become a critical requirement in providing solutions to GIS tasks and projects. A geodatabase is a spatial database designed to store, query, and manipulate geographic information and spatial data. GIS programming allows GIS users to automate repetitive tasks and to present a custom interface. Visualisation technologies provide powerful tools for presenting, interpreting and analysing of these data sets.

In this course, students will learn about Python scripting language for GIS programming, geodatabase design and implementation, spatial data visualisation in GIS, and 3D visualisation using markup language.
