Program description

The topics covered in this course will provide participants with an in-depth knowledge of geo-information technology.

There is an increasing need for organizations to efficiently acquire and exploit geo-information. The emphasis is therefore on the integration and reuse of geo-information and the associated production process. Such efforts are the core activity of building spatial data infrastructures (SDIs). To handle the ever-increasing volumes of data storage and data flow between computer systems, the characteristics and functionality of such infrastructures require special attention from different technical perspectives: data acquisition, processing and dissemination.

Understanding the design principles and being able to apply appropriate technology for implementation purposes is of key importance to staff in these organizations. They must effectively carry out data acquisition (from remotely sensed images and other sensors), database management, geo-information processing and visualization techniques to build integral geo-information applications and SDIs in any geo-information application domain.

The programme addresses the needs of geoinformatics engineers who wish to improve their skills in using integrated geo-information production technology.
