Program description

Studying in a international multicultural environment, you become acquainted with ready-to-use GIS & earth observation tools & methods that can be used to model different processes in System Earth..

Over the past decade, the fields of earth observation and geo-information science have gradually moved away from the traditional mapping or “inventory” type of science to focus increasingly on understanding the processes that shape our environment, predicting their future effects, and providing improved information to support planning and policy making.

A process-oriented approach to solving problems requires not only a sound basis of factual spatial data that can be used by scientists and/or decision makers but also a strong background in the field of application. Combined with expert knowledge, earth observation and geo-information science are essential tools to support decision making and the management of System Earth.

The course is especially relevant for professionals (scientists and practitioners) with an academic background who deal with geospatial data but who have only a limited knowledge of the principles of GIS and earth observation in their application field.

Studying in a international multicultural environment, you become acquainted with ready-to-use GIS and earth observation tools and methods that can be used to study and model different processes in System Earth.

Objectives
Participants will be able to generate information from Earth Observation and data in Geoinformation Systems (GIS) to support the study and display of processes in the system earth and the role of human beings in this.

Instruction modes
Lectures, workshops, practical exercises, hands-on case studies.

Curriculum
Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Earth Observation, system analysis, user perspective, modelling, data integration, data display. Case study in a selected field of interest.
